Interesting. I ended up having to add a static mapping for dev and prod pools to a config.yaml file just to get past the issue and move onto bigger things. Puppet and I have a love / hate relationship; I love that it keeps servers in check, but I hate the fact that simple design principles are not avail. I get that it's based upon DSL, and being a software guy I am procedural based, but 2.7 should have at least afforded us the ability to accomplish these simple feats. Moving onto puppet 3.x will be a huge undertaking, but if we get funded, I think we can make it happen. Thx for the post.

Confirmed. When I tried to write to a file, the contents wouldn't be available until I ran it a 2nd time. Then I started running into permission issues (SELinux enabled), so then I decided to create an empty file in the modules/nginx/files dir, but this made no sense as I now had a file whose sole purpose was to act as a container for transitory data. In short, total hack.

Lol. And spend another 3-4 months porting over all the modules? Don't have that kind of time nor resources.

Concat looks promising, however it's only for 3.x, and I am currently on 2.7.x

Question is straight forward, however in the interests of solving my problem, I also included 'the weeds'.
