Quest 2 Task 3 Add Rule does not find matching node

Going through the learning vm tutorial. Get to Quest 2 - The Power of Puppet, Task 3 - Create a node group. The snippet in the tutorial shows the rule 'name is learning.puppetlabs.vm' as matching 1 node. This does not happen for me, it is always 0. But after a time the 'pinned nodes' section below the rules lists 'learning.puppetlabs.vm'.

Is this normal?

I'm running PE 4.2.1

-Run puppet agent -t

-Then try putting in name

I ran into the same problem. The solution is on their github page for the Quest.


Click on the Node name field, and you should see the Learning VM's certname autofilled. If no matching certname apprears, trigger a puppet run (puppet agent -t) on the Learning VM. As part of the puppet run, the Learning VM will check in, making its information available to the console node classifier.
