By default the Puppet agent assumes that the server will be called 'puppet'. In this case your agent cannot resolve the name 'puppet' and so is failing.

You need to either:

  • Add a DNS entry for puppet
  • Add a hosts file entry for puppet
  • Or set server to the hostname of your master in /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf and ensure that it can be resolved via DNS/hosts
