rake puppet:import:puppet_classes wasn't finding my classes, so I added a couple of puts to app/models/environment.rb to show what environment and modulepath it's looking. Now, even though my settings.rb says

:modulepath: /Users/eric/Sandbox/svn/puppet/etc/modules/
:tftppath: tftp/

This is what comes out:

rake puppet:import:puppet_classes RAILS_ENV=production
(in /Users/eric/Sandbox/foreman)
using environment production
scanning modulepath /Users/eric/.puppet/modules
scanning modulepath /usr/share/puppet/modules
Environment   old:1     current:1
PuppetClasses old:0     current:0

I was able to trick it with a symlink but this would be good to have working.

Hi Eric,

The modulepath variable is not being used for importing classes, since the idea is that you should be able to read it from puppet.conf (if puppet can find it, we should be able to find it too ;))

It shouldnt be a big problem to make it work, but I was just wondering why it didnt pick up the right settings from your puppet.conf.
Can you post your puppet.conf?
