Installing Puppet agent

In this section we assume you have already installed the apt or yum Puppet repository on your agent system in the same way that you did on your Puppet Server.

Installation on CentOS/RHEL/Fedora

Install the Puppet yum repository and then the “puppet-agent” package. See this index to find the correct rpm file needed to install the puppet repo for your Linux distribution. For example, to install Puppet 5 for CentOS 7 or RHEL 7, do the following:

# rpm -ivh https://yum.puppetlabs.com/puppet5/puppet5-release-el-7.noarch.rpm
# yum -y install puppet-agent

Note

For a correct installation we recommend the use of Puppet versions equal or greater than 5.

Installation on Debian/Ubuntu

Install curl, apt-transport-https and lsb-release:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install curl apt-transport-https lsb-release

Get the appropriate Puppet apt repository, and then the “puppet-agent” package. See https://apt.puppetlabs.com to find the correct deb file to install the puppet repo for your Linux distribution.

# wget https://apt.puppetlabs.com/puppet5-release-xenial.deb
# dpkg -i puppet5-release-xenial.deb
# apt update
# apt-get install -y puppet-agent

Note

For a correct installation we recommend the use of Puppet versions equal or greater than 5.

Note

The releases supported by the manifest to install Wazuh are as follows:

Ubuntu: precise | trusty | vivid | wily | xenial | yakketi

Debian: jessie | wheezy | stretch | sid

Configuration

Add the server value to the [main] section of the node’s /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/puppet.conf file, replacing puppet.example.com with your Puppet Server’s FQDN:

[main]
server = puppet.example.com

Restart the Puppet service:

# /opt/puppetlabs/bin/puppet resource service puppet ensure=running enable=true
