Greetings Community,

I installed Puppet Enterprise yesterday, and it has taken me less than 24 hours to break a perfectly good working install. NOTE : this is my first experience with Puppet.

So, I deleted the SSL certificate on the Puppet Master server by accident, and followed the guide here to try fix it :

When I execute Step 6 of above article, "Step 6: Run Puppet on the Monolithic Server" I get the following error :

[root@puppet-dtup catalog]# puppet agent -t --trace Info: Retrieving pluginfacts Info: Retrieving plugin Info: Loading facts Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on SERVER: Evaluation Error: Error while evaluating a Function Call, "" is not an Array.

Try checking what classes are assigned to the group "PE Certificate Authority" in the PE Console. If one of the classes is "puppetenterprise::profile::certificateauthority", please note and report back here if the class has an parameter assigned to it or not.

Hi GregLarkin, thank you for replying, The only class I can see is this one : Class: puppet_enterprise::profile::certificate_authority It only has 1 parameter assigned to it, as follows : Parameter name : client_whitelist Value : ""

Ok, I think that is the issue here. The module expects an array, but it's receiving a string. Please change the value to place square brackets around it, e.g. [ "" ] and commit the change. Then run the agent again and let me know if it works or not
