Hello, I am just getting my puppet servers working correctly. I have my Master server set up and I can manually sign certs and everything works but for some reason when I try to use autosign.conf it does not sign them. I have proper dns entries set up and the /etc/hostname on the remote servers match the dns record.


ssl_client_header = SSL_CLIENT_S_DN
ssl_client_verify_header = SSL_CLIENT_VERIFY
autosign = /etc/puppet/autosign.conf

And then inside my /etc/puppet/autosign.conf is as follows

For some reason these servers are still pending

This is what I get on the remote server.

root@test:~# puppet agent --waitforcert 5 --test
notice: Did not receive certificate

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Did you check if the test is send for puppetmaster with domain? Try execute on master: puppet cert -l and show us if the certificate is coming with domain. if not , change the resolv.conf and add domain on agent.

root@puppet:/etc/puppet/manifests# puppet cert -l "" (9E:55:A5:88:08:9B:7C:DC:65:AF:BF:61:9A:6C:D4:8F) "" (B7:BE:EA:51:FA:1D:57:3B:1D:C9:1E:5C:1F:B4:FA:A8)

Try use naïve autosigning.To enable naïve autosigning, set autosign = true in the [master] section of the CA puppet master’s puppet.conf., just to check if it's a problem with the file or not.

changed the config to show auto sign = true and then restarted the service puppet master. When I type Puppet cert list it still shows the unsigned servers. Any ideas? do I need to call a different command?

Try clean the certificate and try again. on master puppet cert clean , on agent find $(puppet master --configprint ssldir) -name -delete and than try again , puppet agent -t
