    • Fix Version/s: puppet-agent 5.0.0

    • Labels:
    • Environment:

      Windows Nano Server

    • Release Notes Summary:
      To allow Puppet to run on Nano server without immediately crashing requires a patch to the COM initialization code inside Ruby 2.4. This does not allow for complete support of Puppet on Nano server, but at least allows it to startup.
    • QA Risk Assessment:
      No Action

      Description

      Nano Server does not support the COM STA model, MTA needs to be used.

      In order to set MTA, CoInitializeEx needs to be used in place of CoInitialize:
