New install centos7 quickstart fails

Trying to do the quickstart for foreman 1.7 on a clean centos7.0 VM and
it's failing in the step where you download the ntp module, then import it
to the foreman environment.
(Foreman :: Manual) - I get 'no
changes to your environments detected' - where do I start debugging ?

Some more details - the firewall is 'off' for now to take that out of the
equation. I did have some issues doing foreman-installer that were DNS
resolution related, but I faked it with a hosts file entry and the foreman
installer worked fine after that. Did 'puppet agent -test' and the host
does appear in foreman, just can't import the puppet module into foreman
for some reason

Ideas ?
