Description

Hi,

When using puppet on German windows together with foreman (same machine is puppetmaster) there is an encoding bug.

Windows uses windows-1250 encoding, but foreman needs UTF-8 encoding.
As a result foreman doesn't show any facts about windows puppet clients.

In Germany there is a facter line:

Mitteleuropäische Zeit ....

Foreman does not like the "ä" inside this line.
Changing the "ä" to an "a" solves this problem.

I already wrote with Ohad Levy and that's his opinion about it:

"it sounds to me like two different bugs:
1. facter does not verify that it gets the values in UTF8
2. foreman does not check that either.

imho, its best solved in 1, and as a workaround ,we can probably fix
it in 2 as well."
