Puppetserver refuses to start with /tmp mounted noexec.

Im in the process of investigating and moving our code base to Puppet 4.

I came across something very interesting today, in that Puppet 4 does not like /tmp to be mounted noexec.

Now, we mount /tmp with nosuid and noexec as per the recommendation in the Securing Debian Manual.

After much hours of trouble shooting I came across "Puppet Server run issue when /tmp/ directory mounted noexec" (And I dont know why I didnt read this in the first place.)

As per the recommendation, you basically need to add to /etc/default/puppetserver.

JAVA_ARGS="-Xms2g -Xmx2g"
