When I run puppet agent -t --server server1, I'm getting below warning:

Warning: Unable to fetch my node definition, but the agent run will continue:
Warning: undefined method `include?' for nil:NilClass

But after the command successful completed, I had run it again, this warning is gone. I also checked the auth.conf file and it do included below contents in top of this file.

# allow nodes to retrieve their own node definition
path ~ ^/node/([^/]+)$
method find
allow $1

So I would need some help on this to see if I can fix this warning issue when I first time run this?

Thanks Link

We don't what version of Puppet you're running. It is likely that either something changed on your Puppet Master after the first run and before the second one, or you are encountering a weird bug. It's going to be very hard to get to the bottom of this unless you can reproduce the issue.

My experience with this has been the same. It only happens on the first agent run for a node against the master but does not happen again after that. I filed PUP-6691 in the Puppet JIRA tracker for this issue.
