puppet.conf permission issues should be blocking - now silently ignoring error

    Details

    • Release Notes:
      Bug Fix
    • Release Notes Summary:
      Puppet subcommands now fail if we are unable to read `puppet.conf`. The only subcommands that do not require a readable `puppet.conf` are `help` and `--version`.

      Description

      If puppetserver can't access puppet.conf because of permission issues, it logs a warning line and carries on.

      All configurations in puppet.conf are of course ignored.

      This is a major headache because user is likely to issue

      sudo /opt/puppetlabs/bin/puppet master --genconfig
      

      which prints out the expected configurations.

      I would prefer the puppetserver to block when unable to access puppet.conf.
