I recently installed a puppetserver successfully following the official guides. My setup was something like this. A docker container with ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS. The puppetserver was installed successfully and when trying to run the command puppetserver came through this error ” Puppetserver command not Found “.
The problem was in the latest puppetserver version the puppetserver path is not added to the $PATH so added and the problem got solved.
Here is how to add the program path to the $PATH
This will add the new path to the $PATH. To verify it use this command
echo $PATH which should show the recently added path
Extra tips on puppetserver certificate generation:
As we know this command puppet master –no-daemonize –verbose will generate a certificate in puppet server (master) but remember to stop the puppet master before running this else you might come up with some error message like bellow
Error: Could not run: Could not create PID file: /var/run/puppetlabs/puppetserver/puppetserver.pid
stop the puppetserver and run the puppet certificate generation in master node again.
