FAQ
Hi,

We set up Dashboard a month or two ago, running on our Puppet master (a
Debian server). All of our machines are running puppet just fine, but one
of them, an XP machine (the software we're running doesn't work on server
2003 for some reason), doesn't seem to be sending reports to Dashboard.

I've checked the puppet.conf file and it's the same as the 2003/2008
servers, though none of them are set to report, but all of them do (except
the XP machine). All the Debian machines are running as expected.

The puppet.conf on the Windows machines (XP, and servers) all contain the
following:
[main]
pluginsync=true
server=<puppet master FQDN>
autoflush=true
I haven't found too much documentation on this stuff (just this:
http://docs.puppetlabs.com/dashboard/manual/1.2/bootstrapping.html#configuring-puppet),
and I have no idea how to proceed. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Josh Shabtai

    Puppet by default is configured to send reports. You can check this using
    the `--configprint` option:
    puppet agent --configprint report true
    puppet agent --configprint reporturl
    http://localhost:3000/reports/upload

    Make sure you get the same values reported. Then run puppet from the
    command line and verify that it sends the report:
    puppet agent --test --debug --trace
    ...
