No [Master] in my puppet.conf file. I can only see [main] and [agent] by default after installation. my installation is open source puppet master. So my question is should i create entry [Master] manually in my puppet.conf file to enable settings? or can i put all the settings (entries) in [Main] ???

Can someone please clarify?

It should be possible to put the settings in [Main]. See here: Config Files: The Main Config File (puppet.conf).

But as noted in the link, master-specific settings should be under [Master].

Thanks for your response. So can i manually create an entry for [master] in puppet.conf file? because i have only [main] and [agent] by default.

Remember, you can set values using the puppet config command. Here's an example setting the 'server' value in the 'agent' section of the puppet.conf puppet config set server= --section agent
