``I am new to puppet,Have tried to install puppet enterprise 2016.2 in my local machine(monolithic method)

*downloaded tar file and extracted it *gave the option as Guided install option *It popped out with message as Please go to https:/hostname/:3000 in your browser to continue installation *Opened the page and followed the instructions given in puppet labs and in final verfication steps it popped with error message , instructed me to check logs

While going through logs unfortunately my machine got crashed and rebooted

And I tried to open the console but it wasn't so i ran the script .puppet-enterprise-uninstaller to unistall . Then tried to install again using the script /puppet-enterprise-installer but it was stopped with below lines and not proceeding further (also unable to access the https:/hostname/:3000)

We're preparing the Web Installer...

./puppet-enterprise-installer: line 502: /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin/facter: No such file or directory 2016-09-14 10:58:50,887 Running command: mkdir -p /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/share/installer/installer 2016-09-14 10:58:50,890 Running command: cp -pR /tmp/puppet-enterprise-2016.2.1-el-6-x8664/* /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/share/installer/installer/ Please go to https://:3000 in your browser to continue installation. Be sure to use 'https://' and that port 3000 is reachable through the firewall. 2016-09-14 10:58:51,101 Running command: RACKENV=production /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin/bundle exec thin start --debug -p 3000 -a --ssl --ssl-disable-verify &> /dev/null

Please guide on this.

Puppet Enterprise Installer

Puppet Enterprise offers two different methods of installation.

[1] Guided install

Recommended for beginners. This method will install and configure a temporary webserver to walk you through the various configuration options.

NOTE: This method requires you to be able to access port 3000 on this machine from your desktop web browser.

[2] Text-mode

Recommended for advanced users. This method will open your $EDITOR (vi) with a PE config file (pe.conf) for you to edit before you proceed with installation.

The pe.conf file is a HOCON formatted file that declares parameters and values needed to install and configure PE. We recommend that you review it carefully before proceeding.


How to proceed? [1]: 1

We're installing the Puppet Agent...

Do as the installer state:

NOTE: This method requires you to be able to access port 3000 on this machine from your desktop web browser.

So open a web browser and access http:<your_puppet_master_ip>:3000 then follow the GUI instruction.
