      Description

      Switching to puppet (2.7.3) for managing my OS X Lion systems, I'm finding group membership not being updated. Couldn't find a dup for this, hope the information helps...

      Starting out, user dt is not a member of group dt-grp:

      <pre>

      1. dscl . read /groups/dt-grp | grep GroupMembership
        GroupMembership:
        </pre>

      ...Run puppet, says it adds to the group:

      <pre>

      1. puppet agent --test --environment production
        info: Caching catalog for cypress.keck.waisman.wisc.edu
        info: Applying configuration version '1315332406'
        notice: /Stage[main]/Users_test/User[dt]/groups: groups changed '' to 'dt-grp'
        notice: Finished catalog run in 0.89 seconds
        </pre>

      ...but the user still isn't part of the group:

      <pre>

      1. dscl . read /groups/dt-grp | grep GroupMembership
        GroupMembership:
        </pre>

      ...Hrm, let's add the user manually...just like the puppet code does...

      <pre>

      1. dseditgroup -o edit -n . -a dt dt-grp
      2. dscl . read /groups/dt-grp | grep GroupMembership
        GroupMembership: dt
        </pre>

      ...But puppet still tries to add the user to the group...

      <pre>

      1. puppet agent --test --environment production
        info: Caching catalog for cypress.keck.waisman.wisc.edu
        info: Applying configuration version '1315332406'
        notice: /Stage[main]/Users_test/User[dt]/groups: groups changed '' to 'dt-grp'
        notice: Finished catalog run in 0.83 seconds
        </pre>
