Note that any setting that´s valid in the configuration file is also a valid long argument, although it may or may not be relevant to the present action. For example, server and run_mode are valid settings, so you can specify --server <servername>, or --run_mode <runmode> as an argument.

See the configuration file documentation at http://docs.puppetlabs.com/references/s… for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppet with --genconfig.
