A stand-alone Puppet filebucket client.puppet filebucket [-h|--help] [-V|--version] [-d|--debug] [-v|--verbose]

This is a stand-alone filebucket client for sending files to a local or central filebucket.This client can operate in three modes, with only one mode per call:

backup: Send one or more files to the specified file bucket. Each sent

     file is printed with its resulting md5 sum.

get: Return the text associated with an md5 sum. The text is printed

     to stdout, and only one file can be retrieved at a time.

restore: Given a file path and an md5 sum, store the content associated

     with the sum into the specified file path. You can specify an
     entirely new path to this argument; you are not restricted to
     restoring the content to its original location.

Note that +filebucket+ defaults to using a network-based filebucket available on the server named +puppet+. To use this, you'll have to be running as a user with valid Puppet certificates. Alternatively, you can use your local file bucket by specifying +--local+.$ puppet filebucket backup /etc/passwd /etc/passwd: 429b225650b912a2ee067b0a4cf1e949 $ puppet filebucket restore /tmp/passwd 429b225650b912a2ee067b0a4cf1e949 $Note that any configuration parameter that's valid in the configuration file is also a valid long argument. For example, 'ssldir' is a valid configuration parameter, so you can specify '--ssldir directory' as an argument.

See the configuration file documentation at for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppet with '--genconfig'.

debug: Enable full debugging.

help: Print this help message

local: Use the local filebucket. This will use the default

     configuration information.

remote: Use a remote filebucket. This will use the default

     configuration information.

server: The server to send the file to, instead of locally.

verbose: Print extra information.

version: Print version information.puppet filebucket -b /tmp/filebucket /my/fileLuke KaniesCopyright (c) 2005 Puppet Labs, LLC Licensed under the GNU Public License
