Config Files: puppetdb.conf

Included in Puppet Enterprise 3.3. A newer version is available; see the version menu above for details.

The puppetdb.conf file contains the hostname and port of the PuppetDB server. It is only used if you are using PuppetDB and have connected your puppet master to it.


The puppetdb.conf file is always located at $confdir/puppetdb.conf. Its location is not configurable.

The location of the confdir varies; it depends on the OS, Puppet distribution, and user account. See the confdir documentation for details.


server =
port = 8081


The puppetdb.conf file uses the same INI-like format as puppet.conf, but only uses a [main] section and only has two settings:

  • The server setting must be set to the hostname of the PuppetDB server.
  • The port setting must be set to the port of the PuppetDB server.

See the PuppetDB manual for more information.
