I am trying to install Puppet Enterprise Version 2.7 in SLES 11 in VPC.

Hey Celia,

Thanks for your reply (and sorry for the late response :-) ). Yes, the reason behind the issue is trying to install puppet enterprise version by not opting to install the console. I didn't understand earlier that Console is mandatory (could be either in the same machine or different machine) for installing puppet enterprise.

And answering for the point that the installer is getting failed even with the console option, there was some configuration mistakes done from my side while installing puppet.
