We did a split installation, but according to puppet Monolithic installation docs: "The passwords can be retrieved from /etc/puppetlabs/installer/database_info.install when the installation is complete".

If you are pe user, you should be able to ask puppet support. 2 years ago we asked the similar question, then we were told that this was the way it supposed to be, that's why we choose to run an external postgres datatabse which we have full control.
