If you're new to Puppet Enterprise, you will first need a control repository to manage your environment. See here for help on setting one up. 

Connecting nodes to Puppet Enterprise: 

  • Install/update agent software.
    • Node agent packages can be found on your Puppet Enterprise server
      • (e.g. https://pe2019-<your server>.its.uiowa.edu:8140/packages/current/ )
  • Change the value of "server" in puppet.conf to your Puppet Enterprise server's fully qualified domain name
  • The Puppet Enterprise server will need to approve the certificate of the node, unless you wish autosigning to be enabled

More info on installing and configuring node agents can be found here
