Hi group,

I'm using capistrano to deploy my puppet manifests to the puppet master server.
Capistrano copies the new files on the server in a 'releases' directory and after that just changes the 'current' symlink to the new version.
(/usr/share/puppet/configuration/current in my case)
This works very well so far.

Unfortunately the master seems to have problems with that symlink change until I restart the puppetmaster daemon.
If I do not restart the master daemon the clients are getting error messages complaining that the master does not provide any configuration:

err: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on SERVER: Could not find class example for server.example.domain

After manually restart of master daemon, everything works again.

Here are some of my master's config dirs:

puppet master --configprint libdir
puppet master --configprint confdir
puppet master --configprint modulepath

Anyone an idea what's going wrong here?
seems pretty typical of a ruby/rails application to have to restart the server after changes because of caching so I would probably add a step to do that in your capistrano deploy.rb - something like (untested)

after 'deploy', 'deploy:restart'

and if necessary, add the task

namespace :deploy do #undoubtedly this already exists
task :restart do
run "touch /var/lib/puppet/rack/tmp/restart.txt"
# where ever your 'rack' directory, should be a tmp folder
