Puppet Master Module for Puppet

Build Status

Use this module to deploy a puppetmaster server via 'puppet apply' command and avoid using a few manual steps.


It requires the PuppetLabs Repository added before using the module on Debian systems. Use:

$ puppet module install puppetlabs-apt

And then add data below to your node resource:

  apt::source { 'puppetlabs':
    location   => '',
    repos      => 'main',
    key        => '4BD6EC30',
    key_server => '',

Quick Start

$ puppet module install fsalum-puppetmaster

Include the following in your master.pp if you plan to install puppetmaster with passenger:

     package { 'puppetmaster-passenger': 
       ensure => installed, 

     class { puppetmaster:
       puppetmaster_service_ensure       => 'stopped',
       puppetmaster_service_enable       => 'false',
       puppetmaster_report               => 'true',
       puppetmaster_autosign             => 'true',
       puppetmaster_modulepath           => '$confdir/modules:$confdir/modules-0',
