Puppet Enterprise 2019.0

Forgetting a replica cleans up classification and database state, preventing degraded performance over time.

Run the forget command whenever a replica node is destroyed, even if you plan to replace it with a replica with the same name.

  1. Verify that the replica to be removed is permanently offline.
  2. On the primary master, as the root user, run puppet infrastructure forget <REPLICA NODE NAME>
  3. Revoke certificates for the deleted replica node and deactivate it in PuppetDB by running puppet node purge <REPLICA NODE NAME>
