I am new in Puppet.

I am done for installing PE Master.

I am done for install and setup Two PE agents.

My question is how to automatically install PE Agents in different Nodes or Virtual machines.

I know using answers.txt file you can install PE agents in new nodes.

But, without answers.txt file install PE agents.

Please, help me

Thanks, Ashok

Puppet does configuration management well, but it is not so great at provisioning. For this you will almost certainly need another tool, such as Foreman.


You can use Puppet Package Mangement

From the node:

 curl -k https://<master hostname>:8140/packages/current/install.bash | bash

Then just sign the cert on the master once completed:

 puppet cert list
 puppet cert sign <certname>
