The user most likely has far less priviledges than the original user who is
running the puppet command (most likely `root`).

Thanks Stefan, that was it.

I was mounting my tmp folder to another volume and that folder was not
writable. I did not know that puppet writes to /tmp.
Should we display a warning if tmp cannot be written to? The error message,
in its current form, is not easy to debug.

Bug #13973: No such file or directory error with ssh_authorized_keys
https://projects.puppetlabs.com/issues/13973#change-61901

Author: Nitesh Goel
Status: Needs More Information
Priority: Normal
Assignee: Nitesh Goel
Category: ssh
Target version: 2.7.x
Affected Puppet version: 2.7.13
Keywords: 
Branch: 


When I try to set authorized keys through the ssh_authorized_key resource
type, I get the following error:

    Could not evaluate: Puppet::Util::FileType::FileTypeFlat could not
write /home/nitesh/.ssh/authorized_keys: No such file or directory -
/opt/puppet/lib/puppet20120417-2519-62ftr9.lock
    
$vardir config is set to /opt/puppet/lib. I am saving my puppet manifests
in a git repo and running them locally without a puppet server.
