I'm in the process of upgrading an old puppet 2.7 installation to puppet 3.8, and I've also been shuffling the location of some of hiera's data. I'm not sure which is to blame here.
puppet agent --test, run on the same system running the puppetserver is giving me an error:
Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on SERVER: Could not find data item nagios::htpasswd.users in any Hiera data file and no default supplied at /etc/puppet/modules/nagios/manifests/master.pp:77 on node xxx.example.com
This particular hiera key comes from a file via the hiera-file back-end.
The cited puppet config line is in a file resource which specifies:
content => hiera('nagios::htpasswd.users')
However, I can run the following successfully:
puppet apply -e 'notice hiera("nagios::htpasswd.users")'
So, I'm thinking that all the data is in the right place, but that the puppetserver is for some reason not using hiera-file as expected, despite it being configured in /etc/puppet/hiera.yaml
Can anyone suggest what is going on here?
