This may be a dumb question, but here goes

So I'm running on Puppet 3.1.1 on RHEL5, and i've been using Hiera since 2.5/2.6 ish and it's been great!! I was reading up on Automatic Parameter Lookups and would love to use it for my modules. But I can't seem to ever get Hiera/Puppet to load the value i've set in my yaml files. I feel like I must be missing something.

I've worked my way through the docs, and am just not sure what I'm missing. I decided to use the 2.7 example, just to see what it did and noticed that this

$puppetservertest = hiera('puppet::puppetservertest', 'test'),

Doesn't work,

but this

$puppetservertest = hiera('puppetservertest', 'test'),


I'm working on my puppet module, so I was expecting the lookup to grab the variable from my puppet.yaml file (which it does in the second example)

My test puppet.yaml file is pretty simple, it looks like this

# Parameters for Puppet Class
puppetservertest: - 'puppet.example.com'

If anyone can shed some light on this it would be awesome!
