We have a puppet (version 0.24.5) server configured with Git, running on Debian Lenny x64. This is a currently functioning environment that pushes puppet updates as needed, except for one snag.
I recently defined a custom check command that calls a python script. I put the script in /etc/puppet/files/nagios/plugins/ which is the distribution directory on the puppet box where the other (already previously pushed) scripts reside . I defined which hosts will use the new check command, etc.
When I commit the change on the puppet server, Git sees the new file and commits. On the client side I can restart the puppet client and daemon.log will show the new file is found, but it never gets pushed to any of the clients. However, Nagios does get updated and of course the checks fail because it can't find the script to run.
For the life of me I cannot figure out why this is happening. On the puppet server I have triple-checked the permissions on my new python script against the other scripts in the plugins directory and just can't figure out what I'm missing.
