Puppet won't create Admin account

asked 2013-04-22 12:50:26 -0600

After modifying puppet file and adding the local hosts' rsa keys, userid, etc., puppet fails to create the Admin account. Here's what I did:

  1. ssh'd to remote server
  2. cd /etc/puppet/manifest/config
  3. edit puppet file
  4. run "ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa" and "ssh-add -l" on the localhost.
  5. run "puppetrunallclients" on the remote server

After the last step, puppet typically creates the Admin account. To verify this I just do an "ls /home" and I see the account. But for this particular server, puppet doesn't create the account. Am I missing something?

When you're running a puppetmaster, the only things you'd need to edit on your client should be:

  • puppet.conf (or /etc/default/puppet or somethink like this) to set the name of your puppetmaster
  • use puppetd --test --noop (then sign your client's ssl-key on the puppetmaster with puppetca / puppet cert ... )
  • fire up your puppet agent on the client
