This was the problem, when I removed

groups => 'clavis',

everything started working.

Thanks !






Best regards,

I think you are confusing the user's primary group with additional groups

From http://docs.puppetlabs.com/references/latest/type.html#user :

gid:
The user’s primary group. Can be specified numerically or by name. Note that users on Windows systems do not have a primary group; manage groups with the groups attribute instead.

groups:
The groups to which the user belongs. The primary group should not be listed, and groups should be identified by name rather than by GID. Multiple groups should be specified as an array.

From http://www.computerhope.com/unix/useradd.htm :

-g initial_group
The group name or number of the user's initial login group. The group name must exist. A group number must refer to an already existing group. The default group number is 1.

-G group,[,...]
A list of supplementary groups which the user is also a member of. Each group is separated from the next by a comma, with no intervening whitespace. The groups are subject to the same restrictions as the group given with the -g option. The default is for the user to belong only to the initial group.

Hi,

I changed code to:

file { "/home/clavis":
ensure => "directory",
owner => "clavis",
group => "clavis",
mode => 700,
require => [ User[clavis], Group[clavis] ],
}

group { 'clavis':
ensure => "present",
}

user { "clavis":
ensure => "present",
home => "/home/clavis",
name => "clavis",
shell => "/bin/bash",
managehome => true,
groups => 'clavis',
}


(removed require => Group['clavis'])

but it is still the same. here is error message:

notice: /Stage[main]//Node[puppetclient2]/Group[clavis]/ensure: created
err: /Stage[main]//Node[puppetclient2]/User[clavis]/ensure: change from absent to present failed: Could not create user clavis: Execution of '/usr/sbin/useradd -d /home/clavis -s /bin/bash -G clavis -m clavis' returned 9: useradd: group clavis exists - if you want to add this user to that group, use -g.






Best regards,
Dušan

you don't need this next line, it'll be auto-required.






require => Group['clavis']
