Fairly certain is was from a puppet book that I got a while back, before hiera was baked in with Puppet and was still something you had to grab from a third party source. Unfortunately the -c and --config doesn't help.

comment Trouble using hiera in masterless setup and getting values set for classes
@Ian You mention /etc/hiera.yaml and it does exist but why would puppet be even looking at it when I specify where the hiera.yaml file is with the --hiera-config flag? I do see that there is a template /etc/hiera.yaml file so I went ahead and symlinked that to the copy of hiera.yaml it should be using (/tmp/puppet/hiera.yaml) and it seems to work now. I guess --hiera-config just gets ignored.

Unfortunately that also returns nil just as 'hiera -y diskless.yaml cluster' returned nil.
