As far as I understand it, storeconfigs are about storing the client data in the MySQL database.
I assume this is the data that is also stored in the .yaml-files in /var/lib/puppet/yaml/node/, that would be stored in the MySQL database.
[root@tst1-01 ~]# head -10 /var/lib/puppet/yaml/node/tst1-01.domain.nl.yaml --- !ruby/object:Puppet::Node parameters: domain: domain.nl hardwareisa: x86_64 clientcert: tst1-01.domain.nl uniqueid: "22acb249" selinux_current_mode: enforcing timezone: CEST role: undefined operatingsystem: RedHat // A lot of more data after this [root@tst1-01 ~]#
- What is the exact goal of saving the information provided by Puppet clients?
- What would you want to do with this information in the MySQL database?
