Config files: puppetdb.conf
puppetdb.conf file configures how Puppet should connect to one or more PuppetDB servers. It is only used if you are using PuppetDB and have connected your Puppet master to it.
If you’re using PuppetDB 3.0 or higher,
puppetdb.conf is documented in the PuppetDB docs.
PuppetDB 2.3 and earlier
The following description does not apply to PuppetDB 3.0 and later. If you’re using a newer version, see the PuppetDB docs instead, as the file format has changed.
puppetdb.conf file is always located at
$confdir/puppetdb.conf. Its location is not configurable.
The location of the
confdir depends on your OS. See the confdir documentation for details.
[main] server = puppetdb.example.com port = 8081
puppetdb.conf file uses the same INI-like format as
puppet.conf, but only uses a
[main] section and only has two settings:
serversetting must be set to the hostname of the PuppetDB server.
portsetting must be set to the port of the PuppetDB server.
See the PuppetDB manual for more information.
