       puppet-filebucket - Store and retrieve files in a filebucket


       A stand-alone Puppet filebucket client.


       puppet filebucket mode [-h|--help] [-V|--version] [-d|--debug] [-v|--verbose] [-l|--local]
       [-r|--remote] [-s|--server server] [-b|--bucket directory] file file ...

       Puppet filebucket can operate in three modes, with only one mode per call:

       backup: Send one or more files to the specified file bucket. Each  sent  file  is  printed
       with its resulting md5 sum.

       get:  Return  the text associated with an md5 sum. The text is printed to stdout, and only
       one file can be retrieved at a time.

       restore: Given a file path and an md5 sum, store the content associated with the sum  into
       the  specified  file  path. You can specify an entirely new path to this argument; you are
       not restricted to restoring the content to its original location.


       This is a  stand-alone  filebucket  client  for  sending  files  to  a  local  or  central

       Note  that  ´filebucket´  defaults  to  using  a network-based filebucket available on the
       server named ´puppet´. To use this, you´ll have to be running as a user with valid  Puppet
       certificates. Alternatively, you can use your local file bucket by specifying ´--local´.


       Note  that  any  configuration  parameter that´s valid in the configuration file is also a
       valid long argument. For example, ´ssldir´ is a valid configuration parameter, so you  can
       specify ´--ssldir directory´ as an argument.

       See           the           configuration          file          documentation          at  for  the  full  list   of
       acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated
       by running puppet with ´--genconfig´.

              Enable full debugging.
