Files

Puppet comes with both a client and server for copying files around. The file serving function is provided as part of the central Puppet daemon, puppetmasterd, and the client function is used through the source attribute of file objects. Learn more at http://projects.puppetlabs.com/projects/puppet/wiki/File_Serving_Configuration

You can use managed files like this:

class myclass {
  package { mypackage: ensure => latest }
  service { myservice: ensure => running }
  file { "/etc/myfile":
    source => "puppet://$servername/modules/mymodule/myfile"
  }
}

The files are searched for in:

$modulepath/mymodule/files/myfile
