Subject: [Puppet Users] Puppet 0.24.8 RPM (0.25.4 client not backwards
To: Puppet Users <puppet-users(a)googlegroups.com>
Does anyone know where I can get the puppet 0.24.8 RPM? We had been
getting it from the public EPEL Repo, but it looks like they just
decided to upgrade the version in their repository to 0.25.4.
So... since our server is running 0.24.8, any other systems we install
from this point on end up getting 0.25 and then fail to talk to the
The clients come up with...
Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 405 on SERVER:
Method Not Allowed
I researched, and found out that this happens when the client is newer
than the server (or to be more specific the server is running 0.24.8
and the client is running 0.25.4)
To whoever decided not to make the client backward compatible, good one!
