Bug #4946

Updated by Ben Hughes almost 3 years ago

The dependencies before/require in 2.6 can be abbreviated with -> or <-. There appears to be a bug with more than one element in a resource block.



These both fail irrespective of whitespace:

<pre>class pkgs {

package { ["mysql", "httpd"]:

ensure => present,

} ->

service { "httpd":

ensure => running,

}

}

include pkgs</pre>

<pre>class pkgs {

package {

"mysql": ensure => present;

"httpd": ensure => present,

} ->

service { "httpd":

ensure => running,

}

}

include pkgs</pre>

And they fail with this error:

<pre>Could not find resource 'Package[mysql]Package[httpd]' for relationship on 'Service[httpd]' on node localhost.localdomain</pre>



This succeeds, as expected:

<pre>class pkgs {

package { ["mysql", "httpd"]:

ensure => present,

before => Service["httpd"],

}

service { "httpd":

ensure => running,

}

}

include pkgs</pre>

Having a single package in the package resource block succeeds with the "->" syntax.
