The "storage control blocks" error indicates the agent cannot resolve the DNS name of the puppet master, see

You can execute the following as an Administrator to determine which server the agent is trying to connect to:

puppet agent --configprint server

You can execute the following command to set the property from the command line:

puppet config set server --section main <puppetmaster FQDN>
