       puppet node action [--terminus _TERMINUS] [--extra HASH]


       This  subcommand interacts with node objects, which are used by Puppet to build a catalog.
       A node object consists of the node's facts, environment, node parameters (exposed  in  the
       parser as top-scope variables), and classes.


       Note  that  any  setting  that's  valid  in  the  configuration  file is also a valid long
       argument, although it may or may not be relevant  to  the  present  action.  For  example,
       server  and  run_mode  are  valid  settings,  so you can specify --server <servername>, or
       --run_mode <runmode> 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.

       --render-as FORMAT
              The format in which to render output. The most common formats are json, s (string),
              yaml, and console, but other options such as dot are sometimes available.

              Whether to log verbosely.

              Whether to log debug information.

       --extra HASH
              A terminus can take additional arguments to refine the operation, which are  passed
              as  an  arbitrary  hash to the back-end. Anything passed as the extra value is just
              send direct to the back-end.

       --terminus _TERMINUS
              Indirector faces expose indirected subsystems of Puppet. These subsystems are  each
              able  to  retrieve  and alter a specific type of data (with the familiar actions of
              find, search, save, and destroy) from an arbitrary number of pluggable backends. In
              Puppet parlance, these backends are called terminuses.

              Almost  all  indirected  subsystems  have  a  rest terminus that interacts with the
              puppet master's data. Most of them have additional  terminuses  for  various  local
              data  models,  which  are  in  turn  used by the indirected subsystem on the puppet
              master whenever it receives a remote request.

              The terminus for an action is often determined by context, but  occasionally  needs
              to  be  set  explicitly.  See  the  "Notes" section of this face's manpage for more


       clean - Clean up signed certs, cached facts, node objects, and reports for a  node  stored
       by the puppetmaster

              puppet node clean [--terminus _TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] host1 [host2 ...]


              Cleans up the following information a puppet master knows about a node:

              Signed certificates - ($vardir/ssl/ca/signed/node.domain.pem)

              Cached facts - ($vardir/yaml/facts/node.domain.yaml)

              Cached node objects - ($vardir/yaml/node/node.domain.yaml)

              Reports - ($vardir/reports/node.domain)

       find - Retrieve a node object.

              puppet node find [--terminus _TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] host


              Retrieve a node object.


              A  hash  containing  the  node's classes, environment, expiration, name, parameters
              (its facts, combined with any ENC-set parameters), and time.  When  used  from  the
              Ruby API: a Puppet::Node object.

              RENDERING  ISSUES:  Rendering as string and json are currently broken; node objects
              can only be rendered as yaml.

       info - Print the default terminus class for this face.

              puppet node info [--terminus _TERMINUS] [--extra HASH]


              Prints the default terminus class for this  subcommand.  Note  that  different  run
              modes  may have different default termini; when in doubt, specify the run mode with
              the '--run_mode' option.



       Retrieve an "empty"  (no  classes,  no  ENC-imposed  parameters,  and  an  environment  of
       "production") node:

       $ puppet node find somenode.puppetlabs.lan --terminus plain --render-as yaml

       Retrieve a node using the puppet master's configured ENC:

       $  puppet  node find somenode.puppetlabs.lan --terminus exec --run_mode master --render-as

       Retrieve the same node from the puppet master:

       $ puppet node find somenode.puppetlabs.lan --terminus rest --render-as yaml


       This subcommand is an indirector face, which  exposes  find,  search,  save,  and  destroy
       actions for an indirected subsystem of Puppet. Valid termini for this face include:
