Description Trever Adams 2015-07-13 19:06:55 EDT
Description of problem:
# hiera -c /etc/puppet/hiera.yaml valid.nod
Failed to start Hiera: NoMethodError: undefined method `unsafe_load_file' for Psych:Module

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Define  /etc/puppet/hiera.yaml:
  - json
  :datadir: /etc/puppet/hieradata/
  - node/%{::fqdn}
  - virtual/%{::virtual}
  - osfamily/%{osfamily}
  - common

2. Try and use hiera
3. The error above

This worked in Fedora 20. I never tried 21. It may be related to bug #1198366 which is still a problem in Fedora 23.
Comment 1 Trever Adams 2015-07-13 19:19:18 EDT
Sorry, I am not sure how I got Fedora 23. It is Fedora 22.
Comment 2 Trever Adams 2015-07-20 19:33:04 EDT
 * Mon May 18 2015 Haïkel Guémar <hguemar@fedoraproject.org> - 1.3.4-2 - Fix errors with Puppet4 (patch from Lukas Bezdicka) 

That is from the changelog. It is what is causing the error message. Undoing the change yields a working hiera.
Comment 3 Trever Adams 2015-07-20 22:09:16 EDT
Yes, removing that change made everything work. I had to update some of my modules, but everything is fine.
Comment 4 Erik Logtenberg 2015-07-22 09:17:41 EDT
Same error here. I would like to use hiera with puppet 4 though, so removing the fixes that make it work with puppet 4 doesn't seem to be the right solution for me.

Is there another way to make hiera cli work again?
Comment 5 Trever Adams 2015-07-22 09:20:01 EDT
Erik, would you mind removing them. I believe you will find that it works wonderfully with Puppet 4 (my use for hiera) without them! (You may have to update modules, etc. depending on how strictly you have followed the newer standards. I was using several versions back in the 3.x series as found in F20. I had to update a few things.)
Comment 6 Erik Logtenberg 2015-07-22 18:36:48 EDT
Confirmed, reverting to hiera-1.3.4-1.fc21.noarch does solve the issue I ran into. I couldn't find an already built hiera package for F22 without the patch from comment #2 but the F21 package for hiera appears to work just as well in F22.
Comment 7 Erik Logtenberg 2015-07-22 18:39:32 EDT
By the way, puppet agent still gives a message that concerns the same issue, however in this case it's merely a warning and it works just right. Nontheless, it appears something about this safe/unsafe loading needs fixing.

# puppet agent --onetime --no-daemonize --logdest console
Called 'load_file' without the :safe option -- defaulting to safe mode.
You can avoid this warning in the future by setting the SafeYAML::OPTIONS[:default_mode] option (to :safe or :unsafe).
