Linux: Red Hat Satellite puppet issues

If Satellite is not seeing a report from the server use the following command from the host to try and force a sync
puppet agent -tv


If you run into a lock issue where “puppet agent -tv” will not work, try the following:

systemctl stop puppet

rm /var/lib/puppet/state/agent_catalog_run.lock

systemctl start puppet

ps aux | grep puppet
root 26701 42.0 0.3 248764 41080 ? Ssl 10:14 0:01 /usr/bin/ruby /usr/bin/puppet agent –no-daemonize
root 26711 51.0 0.4 351092 56660 ? Sl 10:14 0:01 puppet agent: applying configuration

A couple of minutes later the “puppet agent: applying configuration” job completed. I was able to rerun “puppet agent -tv”.
