My company is changing its domain from <company_name>.local to corp.<new_company_name>.local

We have Puppet Enterprise installed on about 40 agents. Any advise on how Puppet Enterprise will handle this if I start changing conf files? Certificates? Anything I'm missing?

you could possibly try with certdnsnames - but I dont think this is a good idea - also I dont think it would work for old certs.. first I'd check modules/facts to see if you're using anything thats dependent on fqdn - fix this first.

I would be tempted to just regenerate certs:-

on client:

stop puppet rm -r /var/lib/puppet/ssl

on master:

puppet cert clean hostnames..

I would then set autosign up for your nodes - have a look at:link text

  • then restart puppet
