Hello,

Hello,

RHEL6 x86_64, Puppet master 2.7.18, clients 2.7.19.

One of my nodes reports:

Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on SERVER: Duplicate declaration: Package[undef] is already declared in file /etc/puppet/modules/initial_config/manifests/basic_packages.pp at line 22; cannot redeclare at /etc/puppet/modules/authconfig/manifests/init.pp:7 on node wp-prd.library.northwestern.edu

However, this only happens when Puppet runs as a service, "puppet agent --test" runs complete fine.

Packages are specified on a case statement with a trivial custom fact for major RH release[1]

My guess that during a run as a service, that fact isn't processed, but during a "puppet agent --test" it is. Any tips on how I might troubleshoot this discrepancy?

Thank you!

    You have at least two packages, declared in different modules, whose names
    are not being set as you intend. The error message tells you [two of] the
    manifests involved, and you would do well to look at the Package
    declarations in those manifests. The problematic declarations probably
    have this form:

    package { $some_module::some_class::some_var:
    # maybe some parameters
    }

    You should also ensure that all 'case' statements such as the two in the
    manifest fragment you presented have 'default' clauses that catch
    unexpected circumstances and signal you. For instance, they could execute
    the fail() function to trigger a parse error with a message describing what
    the unexpected fact value was. Do not let unhandled cases fall through
    unless you intend to do so. (And where you do intend to do so, be sure to
    document it for yourself.)
