In my config file I have server URL listed like this

  cat /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppetdb.conf
  server_urls = https://webserver:8081

but when I run the 'puppet agent --test' command its picking

'server_urls': https://puppetdb:8081

Where is piking up the wrong URL. I am getting below error.

# puppet agent --test

Based on puppet document

Puppet by default use this URL. server_urls =

we can overwrite this value in /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppetdb.conf file.
