I don't think that this is likely to be your problem, but if you do get
past the puppet issue here, you may run into it - for Windows 2003, you
have to use the XP build of hsflowd - eg the current release
The MSI that you are trying here is only for Windows 2008/Vista or newer.

Another minor think I've noticed with msiexec is that you have to be
careful with the path that you give it - eg msexec /q/ i .\file.msi will
not work, you must not include the ".\".

On windows server 2008 - it works perfectly.

Hi guys,

I'm trying to make puppet install packages on windows.

It will install exe files just fine - but msi files won't be installed.
They fail consistently :(

I've tried both having the files on a central directory - and give an UNC
path to it, and with a file resource, putting the file in c:\temp\ - they
both give the same result upon install:

package { "sflow":
source => $architecture ? {
'x86' =>
'x64' =>
default => 'unsupported
name => $architecture ? {
'x86' => 'sflow',
'x64' => 'sflow',

If I use urls like:
'c:\\temp\\hsflowd-win-1.22.2-x86.msi' - I get Failed to install: The
network name cannot be found - after puppet runs:
msiexec.exe /qn /norestart /i c:\\temp\hsflowd-win-1.22.2-x86.msi

If I use urls like:

it fails with: Failed to install: Fail on INT 24

Using Puppet-3.1.1 client on Windows Server 2003.

How do you guys install msi's on windows? :(
