Hi, i wanted to purge an unused node so i did the following:
puppet node purge

Node "" was purged. If you want to add this node back to your<br>
Puppet infrastructure, remove old certificates from the agent node first.<br>

Logging into the pe console, i see the node is still active.
This worked with 2015.2 but not with 2015.3.
How can i completely remove a node ?

Thanks in advance

Forgot to mention, that, of course, i use the guide provided by puppet.

  1. deactivate the agent (uninstall agent)
  2. deactivate the agent using puppet node deactivate [certname]
  3. puppet agent -t (on master)
  4. service pe-puppetserver restart

I repeated these steps 4 times until the node vanished.

It seems to be a BUG as it worked in 2015.2 flawlessly.

Update: it works by using command the command puppet node purge
