Trying to setup Puppet agent/master on a single machine (planning to install more agents once this is working). I'm mired down in the cert signing process right now, which feels like it should be easy..
Start the server by hand, it creates a ca cert
$ sudo puppet master --no-daemonize --verbose Info: Creating a new SSL key for ca Info: Creating a new SSL certificate request for ca Info: Certificate Request fingerprint (SHA256): 59:31:5B:35:9B:45:4B:36:7F:08:3A:80:2E:4C:78:2F:95:6B:33:45:E4:46:54:E8:8F:33:E8:62:15:1D:A8:DE Notice: Signed certificate request for ca Notice: Rebuilding inventory file Info: Creating a new certificate revocation list Info: Creating a new SSL key for box.localdomain Info: Creating a new SSL certificate request for box.localdomain Info: Certificate Request fingerprint (SHA256): D3:88:48:BD:D6:64:EE:9B:3A:C1:06:C6:9D:4E:74:06:B3:09:BA:82:D1:91:0E:1A:DA:7D:55:0B:7B:83:C6:3F Notice: box.localdomain has a waiting certificate request Notice: Signed certificate request for box.localdomain Notice: Removing file Puppet::SSL::CertificateRequest box.localdomain at '/etc/puppet/ssl/ca/requests/box.localdomain.pem' Notice: Removing file Puppet::SSL::CertificateRequest box.localdomain at '/etc/puppet/ssl/certificate_requests/box.localdomain.pem' Notice: Starting Puppet master version 3.3.0-rc2
Start the client by hand, expecting it to create a cert request:
$ sudo puppet agent --test --waitforcert 60 [sudo] password for mystro: Info: Retrieving plugin Info: Caching catalog for box.localdomain Info: Applying configuration version '1378835927' Notice: Finished catalog run in 0.04 seconds
Look for cert requests (no output)
$ sudo puppet cert list
Why wouldn't the agent be requesting a cert to be signed?
