Iam trying to set up puppet master on Centos 6.2. After providing the certificate name for the master the installation stops and the terminal is closing abruptly. Please suggest proper certname . If step by step installation guide is provided, it will be useful.

This is the Puppet Enterprise installer?

I don't know the Enterprise installer but the certname should basically be the Full Qualifed Domain Name of your puppet master. This name should be resolveable by the DNS on your future puppet agents, too.

So please make sure that hostname --fqdn works on your puppet master and returns the correct fqdn. If this is not the case or if it returns localhost, make sure you have set hostname correctly and have a valid /etc/hosts file.

Now please check on your agent if this name is also resolveable in DNS (by running getent hosts <MASTER'S FQDN>).
