      Description

      Running puppet 3.7.2 on both the master and the client. The issue is that although external facts are being copied to the client during the puppet run, the do not turn up when I run facter -p.

      They do run when I run "facter --external-dir=/var/lib/puppet/facts.d/"

      Also, they show up when I run puppet apply -e 'alert ($::<my_external_fact>)'.

      So Puppet sees it, but facter doesn't without pointing it to the dir.
