I read in the changelog that the older clients should work with the

out the updated puppet client wherever I can before adding the server into
my new build? (not hard to do in my environment)

It's worth trying if upgrading the clients when you upgrade the master
would present a challenge. Even if you plan to update everything in one
fell swoop, it may be to your advantage to rely on the newer master serving
older clients at least for the duration of the upgrade.


I don't think that Puppet 3 agents can work with the Puppet 4 master.
There were incompatible changes to the catalog format.

A Puppet 4 upgrade needs to encompass your whole infrastructure. As such,
I'd advise to try and not throw it in with other changes.



We added a new feature in Puppet Server 2.1.0 which allows it to be used
with Puppet 3 agents (as well as Puppet 4 agents, of course).
