Can anyone help with this?

I am trying to install the following module from

I am root, and have installed the free trial of puppet enterprise:

# puppet master --version

3.8.0 (Puppet Enterprise 3.8.0)

Only have the one node, which is the master. Am using centos 7 in case it makes a difference.

Also I can install other modules using the puppet module install command just fine. When i try and install the sqlserver module i always get the following error:

# puppet module install puppetlabs-sqlserver

Notice: Preparing to install into /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/environments/production/modules ... Notice: Downloading from ... Error: Request to Puppet Forge failed. The server being queried was The HTTP response we received was '403 Forbidden' The message we received said 'You must have a valid Puppet Enterprise license on this node in order to download puppetlabs-sqlserver. If you have a Puppet Enterprise license, please see for more information.'
