I have setup the puppet server and puppet agent, both are active and running good. But certificates are not getting exchanged. When I try to list the certificates in puppet server, I am not getting any response. I checked SSL directory for certificates but there is no certificate exchange happened.

root@EMJUPuppetmaster:/etc/default# sudo systemctl status puppetserver ● puppetserver.service - puppetserver Service Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/puppetserver.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: active (running) since Tue 2017-06-27 13:54:09 UTC; 18s ago Process: 7590 ExecStart=/opt/puppetlabs/server/apps/puppetserver/bin/puppetserver start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Main PID: 7601 (java) Tasks: 28 Memory: 1.2G CPU: 59.318s CGroup: /system.slice/puppetserver.service └─7601 /usr/bin/java -Xms3g -Xmx3g -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -XX:OnOutOfMemoryError=ki

Puppet agent creating certificate and trying to exchange but getting below error during communication.

root@emjupuppetagent:/etc# sudo /opt/puppetlabs/bin/puppet agent --test Info: Creating a new SSL key for emjupuppetagent.1elecabews1e1icy5kmbz... Error: Could not request certificate: getaddrinfo: Name or service not known Exiting; failed to retrieve certificate and waitforcert is disabled root@emjupuppetagent:/etc#

Having the host file updated in puppet agent also. Can someone suggest a option to get rid of it. Facing this for the first time.

Sounds like your dns server don't know about your puppet master. -> getaddrinfo: Name or service not known

By default, agents attempt to connect to puppet, which isn't resolvable in your network. You'll want to set the server setting on each agent to your puppetserver's FQDN.
