Problems starting pe-console-services.service

Just before the completion of a fresh install of PE latest onto a CentOS 7 VM (8GB,4CPU), an error appears in the web console.

It appears as though the pe-console-services.service fails to start although all other related pe-* services do start.

systemctl start pe-console-services.service fails also.

No logging at all appears in the /var/log/puppet.... console directory although perhaps that makes sense given that the service doesn't start to begin with.

I can't see any obvious 'ERROR' log entries in the other log files and the installer log points to the journal and installation log but again nothing obvious.

Has anyone else seen this problem or an I just missing something?

Many thanks extraresolution

-- Unit pe-console-services.service has begun starting up. Feb 08 14:21:36 mybox123 console-services[9486]:

You seem to be missing some important configuration files; could not find /etc/default/pe-console-services or /etc/sysconfig/pe-console-services Feb 08 14:21:36 mybox123 systemd[1]: pe-console-services.service: control process exited, code=exited status=1

-->> Looks like a mode error of puppet Installation procedure... -->> After changing mode of config file, we can start the pe-console-services.

ls -al /etc/sysconfig/pe-console-services -> -rw-r-----. 1 root root 340 Feb 8 14:15 /etc/sysconfig/pe-console-services

chmod 644 /etc/sysconfig/pe-console-services

ls -al /etc/sysconfig/pe-console-services -> -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 340 Feb 8 14:15 /etc/sysconfig/pe-console-services
