    To a T. :)

    We are sort of new to Hortonworks. We first got it working with just using the hosts file.

    This installation the network is a little more robust. Installed a DNS Server.
    Yes FQDN is working great along with reverse dns lookups.

    I will go thru those links to see if I missed anything.

    When you introduce DNS, it may be the problems with Puppet authentication…


    Why would DNS fobar Puppet auth?

    This is environment is new. New network, new install of both console and node client.
    I made sure all the dns names can be resolved and return the correct ip address.



    Is there a way to test puppet? by hand?

    Sasha J

    to test puppet you can use “puppet kick –ping” command.
    Google for puppet documentation, it presents it very clear and with the good samples.
