Overview

Hi just started using Puppet and have been unable to suss something.

Problem

Because of normalization when I add 2 classes to a node with packages that have the same dependencies it fails.

In simple terms have duplicate resources - in this case the package libssl.

Note: packages are being held to prevent latest packages being installed.

QUestion

What's the best practice way to get round this?

class ssh {

package { 'openssh-server':

ensure => installed, require => libssl }

package { 'libssl': ensure => installed, } }

class apache { package { 'apache': ensure => installed, require => libssl, }
package { 'libssl': ensure => installed, } }

node server { include apache include openssl-server
