Description Peter Vreman 2015-09-23 16:04:20 UTC
Description of problem:
A puppet agent run on the Satellite 6 server itself always gives an depreciation warning. The recommended way by puppet to turn the warning off is not possible as there is no global site.pp that is being managed.

# puppet agent -t -v --noop

Warning: The package type's allow_virtual parameter will be changing its default value from false to true in a future release. If you do not want to allow virtual packages, please explicitly set allow_virtual to false.
   (at /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/puppet/type.rb:816:in `set_default')

The only fix is to include the following entry in the /etc/puppet/puppet.conf
disable_warnings = deprecations

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create ContentView A
2. Add couple of puppet modules to ContentView A

5. Run puppet agent -t -v on the Satellite server itself

Actual results:
The warning about allow_virtual is displayed.
The warning is also visible in the Host reports in the UI

Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/14075 from this bug

Comment 3 Marek Hulan 2016-03-07 12:23:11 UTC
Capsule module does not expose additional settings option of puppet module to users. But since puppet version is under installer control we can enforce this quite safely.

Comment 4 Bryan Kearney 2016-03-07 13:07:55 UTC
