Notes on learning Puppet

Getting the clients to connect

  • puppetca is needed to sign the requests coming in from the new puppet hosts. Nothing's done until the server accepts the client.
  • iptables seems by default to be uninterested in letting puppet through.
  • hostname needs to be set by the installation script - because puppet insists on sending signed requests before it can act, these requests will come in as localhost.localdomain if the hostname isn't set BEFORE you configure the host.

Important Locations

  • Apparently the equivalent of cf.main is site.pp
