I'm trying to install Puppet Enterprise 3.1 and have the Master and Console on one host, and the PuppetDB service on another. The installer installs the PuppetDB service if the Console is installed on the Master. When I've tried to configure the puppetdb.conf on the Master to point to the PuppetDB server, the change gets reverted by a built in module in /opt/puppet/share/puppet/modules/ to set the puppetdb server value back to the Master.

How can I appropriately define my Master to use the remote PuppetDB service?

I highly recommend using one of the supported configuration of installing the master, console, and puppetdb on 3 separate servers or in an all-in-one configuration because it will be the easiest way to continue upgrading PE in the future.

However, if you want to pursue this route instead... you just need to change the puppetdbserver parameter in the console for the pepuppetdb::master module on the master. :)

If you need more guidance on editing parameters in the console please review the following documentation:
