How do you generate learn.localdomain.pem which is required to start pe-httpd ?

Starting pe-httpd: Syntax error on line 8 of /etc/puppetlabs/httpd/conf.d/puppetmaster.conf: SSLCertificateFile: file '/etc/puppetlabs/puppet/ssl/certs/learn.localdomain.pem' does not exist or is empty [FAILED] Version 3.2.1 of Puppet Enterprise is available (currently 3.1.0).

Any ideas would be welcomed.

the command line for generating the cert would be "puppet cert generate learn.localdomain" in your case

Viswanathj, thank you. That worked for me. As root I ran the command and was able to start the pe-httpd and have the puppet enterprise console running.
