Error 400 on SERVER The environment must be purely alphanumeric [closed]

Hi Trying to register a host with puppet enterprise and am getting this error Error: Could not request certificate: Error 400 on SERVER: The environment must be purely alphanumeric, not 'puppet-ca'

Google suggests this error is due to a version missmatch between client and server but that is not the case

Master and compile nodes version check

Master:

puppet --version

4.10.5 Compile nodes

puppet --version

4.10.5

puppet --version

4.10.5

Client

puppet --version

4.10.5

according to puppet.conf environment should be DEV [main] logdir = /var/log/puppet

[agent] report = true ignoreschedules = true daemon = false ca_server = cert..monash.edu certname = severname.monash.edu environment = DEV server = lb..monash.edu

Any suggestions on where else to look for root cause.
