I tried reading the following steps to install and configure the puppet master server. I am using this guide.

I am having difficulty creating the CA certificate and the puppet master certificate.

puppet master --verbose --no-daemonize
Error: Could not run: Could not create PID file: /var/run/puppet/

What would be the reason why now I am getting that error? Is puppet master supposed to be running? How can I create the CA certificate and the puppet master certificate if that command can't be fixed?

I don't see the sudo indicated by the guide.
