PuppetDB installation (Optional)

After configuring Puppet Server, the next step is to add PuppetDB so that you can take advantage of exported resources, as well as have a central storage location for Puppet facts and catalogs.

Installation on CentOS/RHEL 7/Fedora

# rpm -Uvh
# yum install puppetdb-terminus.noarch puppetdb postgresql94-server postgresql94 postgresql94-contrib.x86_64
# /usr/pgsql-9.4/bin/postgresql94-setup initdb
# systemctl start postgresql-9.4
# systemctl enable postgresql-9.4

Installation on Debian/Ubuntu

# sh -c 'echo "deb $(lsb_release -cs)-pgdg main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list'
# wget --quiet -O - | sudo apt-key add -
# apt-get update
# apt-get install puppetdb-terminus puppetdb postgresql-9.4 postgresql-contrib-9.4


For CentOS/RHEL/Fedora only, the next step is to edit /var/lib/pgsql/9.4/data/pg_hba.conf and modify the METHOD to be md5 in these two lines:

# IPv4 local connections:
host    all             all               md5
# IPv6 local connections:
host    all             all             ::1/128                 md5

Restart service after change configuration:

# systemctl restart postgresql-9.4

Create a PostgreSQL user and database:

# su - postgres
$ createuser -DRSP puppetdb
$ createdb -O puppetdb puppetdb
$ exit

The user is created with no permission to create databases (-D), or roles (-R) and does not have superuser privileges (-S). It will prompt for a password (-P). Let’s assume a password of “yourpassword”” has been used. The database is created and owned (-O) by the puppetdb user.

Create the extension pg_trgm is the RegExp-optimized index extension:

# su - postgres
$ psql puppetdb -c 'create extension pg_trgm'
$ exit

Test database access:

# psql -h -p 5432 -U puppetdb -W puppetdb
Password for user puppetdb:
psql (9.4.11)
Type "help" for help.
puppetdb=> \q

Configure /etc/puppetlabs/puppetdb/conf.d/database.ini:

classname = org.postgresql.Driver
subprotocol = postgresql
subname = //
username = puppetdb
password = yourpassword
log-slow-statements = 10

Create /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppetdb.conf:

server_urls =

Create /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/routes.yaml:

    terminus: puppetdb
    cache: yaml

Finally, update /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf:

 storeconfigs = true
 storeconfigs_backend = puppetdb

Start puppetdb service:

# systemctl start puppetdb

Once these steps are completed, restart your Puppet Server and run puppet agent --test:

# puppet agent --test

Now PuppetDB is working.
