I am following a tutorial and I get to the point where I have to curl the Node to add the Puppet Agent, but it does not install successfully.

I ask the instructor and he tells me its because I did not use Centos 6 and so because I am using Centos 7, I now have to add a centos 7 module?

I don't really understand this. I was able to succesfully install a Puppet Master on Centos 7, why can I not install a Puppet Agent on a Centos 7 Node?

So I destroyed the old Node and created a new Node, but instead I get this message now:

The agent packages needed to support el-7-x86_64 are not present on your master. To add them, apply the pe_repo::platform::el_7_x86_64 class to your master node and then run Puppet. The required agent packages should be retrieved when puppet runs on the master, after which you can run the install.bash script again.

Please help.

You should do what the error message says to do. On your puppet master, as root, execute:

puppet apply -e 'include pe_repo::platform::el_7_x86_64'

Then run:

puppet agent -t

Yes they could of been a little bit more clear in the error message ;)
