I am trying to debug an issue related to a resource that is based on a schedule. My schedule limits this resource to only apply once a day. I could temporarily change the schedule, but I wish to avoid that.

Is there some file on the puppet client what I can delete/truncate/modify so that it will act as if it hasn't been run during that day (or some other time period)?

You can trick the schedule tracker by manipulating (or truncating) /var/lib/puppet/state/state.yaml.
