comment Could not call sign: Could not find certificate request for puppet
hey there. I just wanted to follow up and mention that I think the problem was in fact with the configuration of the /etc/hosts file (not quite sure what I did wrong, I tripled checked everything). by default puppet agent uses puppet as the default argument to --server but I didn't experience any problems when I explicitly set the --server argument to the FQDN of my puppetmaster.

comment Could not call sign: Could not find certificate request for puppet
Thanks again. So here's where I am stuck. I stopped the puppet master, regenerated the certs and started it again but when I run puppet cert list nothing comes up. I'm confused about the whole certificate issue. I spun up 2 fresh ec2 instances. Am I supposed to upload the .pem files to each of them? Where do I put them and how do I initialize them?

I can telnet on port 8140 into the puppet master from the client and resolve using getent (see original post). However I am still getting the same exact error err: Could not request certificate: Connection refused - connect(2) when running $ puppet agent --test --waitforcert 5. Any ideas what else I could try?

Thanks dawud, I'm still getting an error, can you see my edit (I added the error messages to the bottom of my original question)? Could it a private key signing issue?

Thanks Kvisle, but I'm still a little confused. The line in /etc/nsswitch.conf looked like this hosts: files dns and I changed it to hosts: files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4 however in both cases /etc/hosts is not queried, instead it appears direct dns queries are made. How can I ensure that /etc/hosts will be queried first when using a command like dig or host?

comment Could not call sign: Could not find certificate request for puppet
Thanks dawud, I added the puppetmaster into /etc/hosts on both machines like so 10.248.27.66 ec2-50-112-220-110.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com puppetmaster but dig puppetmaster does not resolve. Only dig ec2-50-112-220-110.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com resolves. Also I'm getting a syntax error on # puppet agent --test --waitforcert. Any advice on how to proceed?
