This is coming from a custom fact in a module you are using. Try running with --debug --trace to see if you can narrow it down. You can also grep for 'config print certname' in your production environment directory on the master, e.g.

$ sudo find /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments/production -type f -exec grep 'config print certname' {} \; -print.

Yes, you are correct, this was the problem. Thanks!

[root@puppetmaster3 ssh]# find /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments/production -type f -exec grep 'config print certname' {} \; -print
    %x[/usr/local/bin/puppet config print certname].chomp
[root@puppetmaster3 ssh]# cat /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments/production/modules/puppet_tests/lib/facter/certname.rb
# Fact: certname
Facter.add('certname') do
  setcode do
    %x[/usr/local/bin/puppet config print certname].chomp

didnt add the kernel confine line to the fact ruby. Derp!!
