Hello all, playing around with the new puppetserver and agent and I am having an issue with the agent talking to the master. I keep getting the below error and I am stumped as to where it might be.

Error: Could not request certificate: Find /puppet-ca/v1/certificate/ca?environment=production&failon404=true resulted in 404 with the message: <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1"/> <title>Error 404 </title> </head> <body>


Problem accessing /puppet-ca/v1/certificate/ca. Reason:

    Not Found

Powered by Jetty:// </body> </html> I am running 3 VirtualBox VM's with CentOS 7 installed. I can get puppet to work using the old 3.8 version no problem. I can even have the 3.8 client talk with the new server and it works. By using the old puppet, I have established that I can communicate with all my VM's inside virtualbox. I think the issue might be with retrieving the CA info, but not sure.
