Puppet Error while signing the certificates

0 votes
puppet cert --list 

On executing, this command does not return anything.

While starting puppet master, I get the following,

#puppet master --no-daemonize --debug --verbose
info: Could not find certificate for 'client.example.com'

While starting puppet client, I get the following:

puppet agent --server puppet --waitforcert 60 --test --debug  --verbose
notice: Did not receive certificate

What's wrong?

This might be because, the master lost your CSR (Certificate signing request) at some point. The easiest way from here will likely be to generate a new key and CSR on your agent machine, submit and sign that.

On the Puppet agent, do

rm -r /var/lib/puppet/ssl 

This is to get rid of obsolete certificate request data

puppet agent --test 

(output should indicate new CSR being generated)

It should then be possible to sign the certificate on the master in the regular fashion.
