FAQ
Hi, I currently use one puppetmaster for my external and internal servers.
For the externals however I have to modify my /etc/hosts for puppet to
work.

Is it possible to use a different hostname for my master without the agents
complaining?

    Yes. You need to generate a certificate for the server that includes the
    external DNS name as an alternative name (supposing that its sense of its
    own hostname is the internal name). See here
    http://serverfault.com/questions/320028/how-to-add-multiple-dns-names-to-my-puppetmaster
    for a fuller description.

    Note that that answer claims you can replace the master's certificate (but
    not the CA certificate) without interfering with clients that have already
    been issued certs. That's plausible -- indeed, it should be the case --
    but I cannot personally confirm it.
