[-h|--help] [--host <host>] [--no-fqdn] [--ignoreschedules] [-t|--tag <tag>] [--test] [-p|--ping] <host> [<host> [...]]
If you are not storing your host configurations in LDAP, you can specify hosts manually.
You will most likely have to run +puppet kick+ as root to get access to the SSL certificates.
+puppet kick+ reads +puppet master+'s configuration file, so that it can copy things like LDAP settings.+puppet kick+ is useless unless +puppet agent+ is listening. See its documentation for more information, but the gist is that you must enable +listen+ on the +puppet agent+ daemon, either using +--listen+ on the command line or adding 'listen: true' in its config file. In addition, you need to set the daemons up to specifically allow connections by creating the +namespaceauth+ file, normally at '/etc/puppet/namespaceauth.conf'. This file specifies who has access to each namespace; if you create the file you must add every namespace you want any Puppet daemon to allow -- it is currently global to all Puppet daemons.
An example file looks like this::
[fileserver] allow *.madstop.com [puppetmaster] allow *.madstop.com [puppetrunner] allow culain.madstop.com
This is what you would install on your Puppet master; non-master hosts could leave off the 'fileserver' and 'puppetmaster' namespaces.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 http://reductivelabs.com/projects/puppet/reference/configref.html for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppet master with '--genconfig'.
all: Connect to all available hosts. Requires LDAP support
at this point.
class: Specify a class of machines to which to connect. This
only works if you have LDAP configured, at the moment.
debug: Enable full debugging.
foreground: Run each configuration in the foreground; that is, when
connecting to a host, do not return until the host has finished its run. The default is false.
help: Print this help message
host: A specific host to which to connect. This flag can be
specified more than once.
ignoreschedules: Whether the client should ignore schedules when running
its configuration. This can be used to force the client to perform work it would not normally perform so soon. The default is false.
parallel: How parallel to make the connections. Parallelization
is provided by forking for each client to which to connect. The default is 1, meaning serial execution.
tag: Specify a tag for selecting the objects to apply. Does
not work with the --test option.
test: Print the hosts you would connect to but do not
actually connect. This option requires LDAP support at this point.
Do a ICMP echo against the target host. Skip hosts that don't respond to ping.sudo puppet kick -p 10 -t remotefile -t webserver host1 host2Luke KaniesCopyright (c) 2005 Puppet Labs, LLC Licensed under the GNU Public License
