Installation and configuration of puppet
I am new to using Puppet, and recently installed puppetmaster and puppet(client) on my Ubuntu server. (both on the same host). I installed using apt-get install.
Now, when I want to remove those packages, I used apt-get --purge remove puppetmaster puppet to remove the package and its configuration files as well.
However, after I do this, the /etc/puppet directory still exists, and even the puppet.conf file also exists.
Is this normal, or is there something I did not do right that the directory still exists??
Also, is it possible to install both puppet master and client in the same host? In the puppet.conf, under agent and master, I use the certname as [localhost] and
[localhost] respectively? Or if there is a better solution to configuring master and client on the same server, please guide me.
Thanks in advance,
