I am in need of a bit of help with setting up a Foreman/Salt system, as I am struggling with understanding the documentation available.
I have a full Foreman instance set up on foreman-server.com (Ubuntu 20.04) using the installation instructions here:
Foreman :: Manual
and just running
I then install foreman_salt plugin on this host with no issue.
I set up a salt master on another host, salt-server.com (also, Ubuntu 20.04), using the instructions in their official documentation here: Salt Project Package Repo
As I understand Foreman documentation, specifically Foreman :: Manual
I now need to install a standalone puppet server on salt-server.com.
So I go to foreman-server.com and try running
puppet ssl bootstrap --server foreman-server.com
But I get the following error:
This is pretty much where I am stuck as I cannot go forward with the smart proxy installation on salt-server.com until that host has the appropriate certificates.
puppetserver ca generate --certname salt-server.com
because I get the error:
Fatal error when running action ‘generate’
Error: Could not find ‘hostcert’ at '/home/vmadmin/.puppetlabs/etc/puppet/ssl/certs/salt-server.com
I would really appreciate some guidance on this process.
