Is there a way to run the "puppet" command without creating confdir, ssldir, etc. directories?
As part of setting up my puppet server, I use puppet itself to generate the puppet user and group, install some preliminary modules, etc.
The problem is, the puppet command automatically creates the default confdir, ssldir, etc. directories, because I don't yet have a puppet config file installed at this point.
For now, my work around is to do all my initial setup, then go back and remove /etc/puppet and /var/lib/puppet so that they can be created properly once I have my puppet config installed and running the real puppet setup.
Is there any command line option that will let me tell puppet to not create the default directories?
Thanks in advance,
