unable to start puppet master in Azure
Hello, I'm new to Puppet and I'm using the Microsoft (MSFT) Azure Marketplace to deploy a pre-configured virtual machine (VM) with Puppet Master 3.7.2 (running on Ubuntu). I just want to kick the tires so I can see how the product works. With a web browser, I'm trying to connect to https://<hostname>.cloudapp.net and I'm unable to connect to the web page for Puppet console on port 443 (I get page cannot be display error). If I run netstat on the Puppet master server I don't see port 443 listening.
I configured the virtual machine per instructions in Getting Started Guide: Deploying Puppet Enterprise in Microsoft Azure - this includes using lower case for hostname and cloud service name, opening in Azure endpoints https 443, puppet 8140, and mcollective 61613 but still no luck connecting to the console. I checked out the file /var/log/upstart/puppet-init.log and I see errors "sudo: unable to resolve host <hostname>" so I assume this is messing up the Puppet install in Azure.
I know how to fix the sudo: unable to resolve host <hostname> issue on this server but I have no way to get on the server to avoid this error before Puppet attempts to install the product. When the virtual machine spins up, the expected behavior is that Puppet should be fully operational. Not sure what to do at this point in time.
I would like to re-run the install but I don't see the file puppet-enterprise-installer. DNS is up and running in my Azure environment (although this particular server doesn't have an host record yet). If you have any ideas on how I can get this working in Azure, that would be great..
thanks in advance for your assistance!
