    Description

      With the puppet-agent package for 1.6.2 from the Puppetlabs repositories on a RHEL Puppetmaster (what is up with that being in there for RHEL/Centos but not Debian/... btw?) we get the following error

      Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 500 on SERVER: Server Error: Evaluation Error: Error while evaluating a Resource Statement, Evaluation Error: Error while evaluating a Function Call, Invalid tag '#<puppet::resource::type:0x61890ff6>' at /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments/development20/modules/saltweb/manifests/config.pp:692:11 at /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments/development20/common/saltpwportal/manifests/init.pp:18 on node bpobs11.bpo.pwit.com
      

      The relevant line 692 it mentions is

      if(!defined(Saltnagios::Client::Nrpe_Check["vhost_${provider}_${virtual_host}_long_requests"])) {
      

      where character 11 is the start of the function name "defined".

      The type referenced is a defined type. All the variables are defined and the whole bit of code has been working fine for months now (with strict and strict_variables settings on).

      The hex code after #puppet:resource:type (presumably the memory location of the object) changes with every run but the error remains otherwise unchanged.

      A downgrade to 1.6.1 on the Master only fixes this issue.

      We are using Puppetserver 2.5.0-1.el7
