    Description

      Problem:

      https://puppet.com/docs/puppet/latest/configuration.html#certname

      The certname section of the docs does not mention the required section of the puppet.conf file the certname entry has to be included in: [main] or [agent].

       

      Suggested improvement:

      The docs should explicitly mention that the certname entry has to be included in the [main] section of the puppet.conf file. 

      If the certname entry is only in the [agent] section this will break the puppet config print command and other dependent commands that require **this to be fully functional.

      It would be beneficial to have a note at the bottom of the certname section to clarify this detail - stating something similar to this:

      "Note: The certname entry is required to be included in the [main] section of the puppet.conf file for full functionality of the puppet config print command and other dependent commands"
