Puppet Platform reference manual

This page documents the history of the Facter 3.11 series.

Facter 3.11.2

Released June 7, 2018.

This is a bug-fix release that shipped with Puppet Platform 5.5.2.

Bug fix

  • When using the systemd-networkd DHCP client, previous versions of the Linux networking resolver didn’t know how to collect DHCP lease information, since it expected dhclient to be installed. Systems relying entirely on systemd-networkd for DHCP management do not use dhclient.

    Facter 3.11.2 checks systemd-networkd’s DHCP leases directory (/run/systemd/netif/leases) in addition to dhclient’s lease files when attempting to identify DHCP servers.

Facter 3.11.1

Released April 17, 2018.

This is a bug-fix and feature release that shipped with Puppet Platform 5.5.1.

Bug fixes

  • Facter 3.11.1 properly checks for errors when gathering disk information on AIX, and no longer warns or reports bogus results for devices assigned to special uses, such as databases. (FACT-1597)

  • Facter 3.11.1 reports MAC addresses on infiniband interfaces. (FACT-1761)

Facter 3.11.0

Released March 20, 2018.

This is a bug-fix and feature release that shipped with Puppet Platform 5.5.0.

Bug fixes

  • The uptime fact for Windows now uses GetTickCount64, which is more reliable, minimizes clock skews, and offers better resolution than the previous method of computing using WMI BootUptime.

New features

  • For each SSH key, Facter 3.11.0 includes the key type as part of its ssh fact.
