The Puppet Enterprise client tools is a set of command line tools that let you access Puppet Enterprise services from a workstation that
may or may not be managed by Puppet.

Because you can safely run these tools remotely, you no longer need to SSH into the Puppet master to execute commands. Your permissions to see information and to take action are controlled by PE role-based access control (RBAC). Your activity is logged under your username rather than under root or the pe-puppet user.

To install PE Client Tools, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install pe-client-tools --version 19.0.3

To upgrade PE Client Tools, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade pe-client-tools --version 19.0.3

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.


This package has no dependencies.
