I have an entry for a file in a puppet manifest that checks file properties. One is the MD5 checksum.

/etc/puppet/modules/Solaris/manifests/init.pp
file {"/etc/logadm.conf": mode=>"644", owner=>"root", group=>"sys", checksum=>"md5", audit=>all; }

Wed Jul 23 03:31:41 -0700 2014 /Stage[main]/Solaris/File[/etc/logadm.conf]/content (notice): audit change: previously recorded value {md5}4313e436be52ffe7a8296aec05612c0b has been changed to {md5}fee96725c6872531af6e65b410f62a3d

How do you make the message go away?

Does anyone have a tip regarding this?
How do I stop it?

I know that the "audit=>all" is causing this.
It recorded the MD5 sum of the file when the audit ran for the first time.
But a newer file was created as a result of patching the client machine.
Is there a command I could rerun on the client or the server to make puppet aware of the new MD5 sum?

I was vaguely nosy, and found a note that the checksum is stored in state.yaml. Maybe stop puppet, nuke the state file, and start puppet?

http://puppetlabs.com/blog/all-about-auditing-with-puppet

/var/lib/puppet/state/state.yaml

NB: Untested advice, potentially dangerous, use at your own risk.

Thanks for the pointer. I believe this does it.

No need to stop the puppet agent. Just two things:
- blank the /var/lib/puppet/state/state.yaml file
- run the puppet agent
New values are recorded.


Blank the file.
#  cp /dev/null state.yaml

Run the agent.

# /opt/puppet/bin/puppet agent --test

notice: /Stage[main]/Solaris/File[/etc/logadm.conf]/mtime: audit change: newly-recorded value Thu Jul 24 03:10:00 -0700 2014

Next run is  normal

# /opt/puppet/bin/puppet agent --test
warning: iconv couldn't be loaded, which is required for UTF-8/UTF-16 conversions
info: Caching catalog for host.example.com
info: Applying configuration version '1406237846'
notice: Finished catalog run in 0.42 second

The puppet agent writes the information to state.yaml.

# ls -l /var/lib/puppet/state
total 370
drwxr-xr-x   2 root     root           5 Oct 25  2012 graphs

-rw-rw----   1 root     root       42639 Jul 24 14:19 state.yaml

The file state.yaml records the MD5 sum.
