Install linux agent
Installing linux agents is not that big of a challenge. First enable the repository.
yum install https://yum.puppet.com/puppet6-release-el-7.noarch.rpm -y
Then install the agent.
yum install puppet-agent -y
Let’s add the executable to our PATH, edit the ~/.bash_profile file.
Let’s add our master to the config file
puppet config set server centosa.home
Let’s try to connect our agent to the master.
puppet agent --waitforcert 60 --test
On the master issue the following command.
puppetserver ca sign --all
If everything goes well we should see our new host in the inventory.
Now the agent is installed and connected to our master.
