5.3.4. HOWTO Disconnect PuppetDB from the Puppet Server
Run the following script on the Puppet Server to stop puppetdb and restart the puppetserver process without the connection.
puppet resource service puppetdb ensure=stopped
# The following line assumes the puppet server configuration directory is
# /etc/puppetlabs/puppet (the default).
mv /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/routes.yaml /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/routes.yaml.backup
puppet config set --section server storeconfigs false
puppet config set --section server reports store
puppet config set --section main storeconfigs false
puppet resource service puppetserver ensure=stopped
puppet resource service puppetserver ensure=running
When puppet is next run on the Puppet server, it will reconfigure the puppetserver and puppetdb to reconnect and restart the appropriate services. If you are debugging an issue, you may want to run puppet agent --disable to prevent Puppet from resetting the system while you are debugging.
