modules are also checked for

devopera/dopuppetmaster — version 0.9.1 May 5th 2014


The Puppetmaster is the central tenet of a puppet infrastructure. This Devopera puppet module configures a puppetmaster that is itself puppetable, uses stored configs in PuppetDB and optionally links to Nagios for monitoring.



  • Migrated over to using environment directories


  • Raise java heap memory limit for Puppet DB


  • Replaced nested $puppet_repo with $puppet_repo_X vars to handle defaults properly


  • Moved across to docommon::fireport alias for opening firewall ports


Setup a basic puppetmaster, replace local /etc/puppet directory with Devopera repo as starting point

class { 'dopuppetmaster' :
  user => $user,
  # setup puppetmaster with devopera-puppet open read-only repo
  puppet_repo_source => '',
  environments => {
    'production' => {
       comment => 'production is the default environment',
       manifest => '$confdir/manifests/',
    'devopera' => {
       comment => 'for all devopera VMs and builds',
       manifest => '$confdir/manifests/',
  # set this machine up as its own puppetmaster, i.e. not use original
  master_use_original => false,
  require => Class['dorepos'],
