Puppet and Common Errors

Feb 20, 2012, 18:03 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to An Anonymous Reader for this link. ]

"Error 1: err: Could not request certificate: getaddrinfo: Name or service not known Probable Solution: Puppet client is not able to reach the puppet master. This usually happens when you are setting up a new environment and puppet master's name is not resolvable. If you can, put a relevant entry in your DNS and add a server variable in [agent] section in puppet.conf. Alternatively you can use /etc/hosts to point the client to the master but you'll have to add appropriate entries on the /etc/hosts of both the puppet master and client.

"Error 2: Starting puppetmaster: Could not prepare for execution: Could not find a default provider for user Probable Solution: This happens because of SELinux restrictions. You can fix this by running a "setenforce 0" which will turn off the SELinux. This is required for CA creation only. So you can turn on SELinux after the puppet master creates CA successfully."
