Hi All,

I've been trying to get PE installed on a Centos 6.4_64 VM running in the vCHS Cloud, with no success. Every time I go through the install process it errors out at the end as follows:

Starting pe-httpd:                                         [  OK  ]
** chown root:root /var/opt/lib/pe-puppet/lib
** cd /opt/puppet/share/puppet-dashboard; /opt/puppet/bin/bundle exec /opt/puppet/bin/rake -s -f /opt/puppet/share/puppet-dashboard/Rakefile cert:create_key_pair RAILS_ENV=production
** /opt/puppet/bin/passenger-status

That task connects to the puppet master on port 8140 to get the cert.

For a connection timeout, i'd guess that that the hostname of the puppet master you entered does not resolve.

Look in : /opt/puppet/share/puppet-dashboard/config/settings.yml

find the value of ca_server

then do ssh -v -p 8140 <ca_server> - does it connect ?

does netstat -nap | grep 8140 show anything listening on 8140 ?

You were correct, I just had to make an entry in my hosts file because the public DNS was not resolving my ca_server name. Its installed successfully now. Thanks! :)

In my case, even ensuring the above works, it is still failing with the same error. Can you please help if there are any checks that we need to carry out. Appreciate your help in advance. Regards Roopesh.
