Puppet 204 - System Administration Using Puppet FAQ

Question:

I am getting the following error when installing Puppet Enterprise:


Could not start Service[pe-console-services]: Execution of '/bin/systemctl start pe-console-

services' returned 1: Job for pe-console-services.service failed because the control process exited

with error code. See "systemctl status pe-console-services.service" and

"journalctl -xe" for details.

Answer:

You need to verify that you have the FQDN of your server in `/etc/hosts`. If the FQDN is not there, Puppet will not install properly. Make sure you review the course videos covering installation. (Video 1, Video 2).

Example:

127.0.0.1 username.mylabserver.com localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4

 

Question:

I'm unable to access the Puppet Console (https://username.mylabserver.com:3000) after installation.

Answer:

The URL https://username.mylabserver.com:3000 is only for installing Puppet Enterprise. You need to access the console using https://username.mylabserver.com. Don't add port 3000.
