Puppet client agent runs fail after registering to the puppet master.

I have a new puppet client whose cert registration fails due to client local time preceeding the puppet master CA certificate "valid from" date by at least a year. Newly registered client system is used for stress testing, so its date can not be changed forward. Any workarounds available for such a scenario?

Puppet requires that the master and the agent system times are in sync. Please check about halfway down the page. You should be able to get the times synced up by running ntpdate on the puppet agent system before your first puppet run.
