      Hide
      Installer package of Puppet agent on Windows has a new installation option 'PUPPET_MASTER_PORT' when used in command line.
      For example command:
      'msiexec /norestart / i puppet-agent-x64.msi PUPPET_MASTER_PORT=2222'
      This will modify puppet.conf -
      it will add a new entry
      'masterport=2222'
       or it will modify an existing masterport entry with the new value, 2222
      This result was previously obtained by using
      'puppet config set masterport 2222'
      after agent was installed.
      If puppet.conf already has a masterport entry, and installer does not use the new parameter 'PUPPET_MASTER_PORT', that entry will be kept.
      This 'masterport' setting it is used when agent and master need to communicate on alternate port (different than default 8140).

      Description

      Currently the MSI that installs the PE agent for Windows lacks an MSI property to configure the masterport setting during the install process.

      This makes life difficult for those who have their master running on an alternate port, as it requires them to do additional configuration of their agent after the agent has been installed.

      It would be very helpful to those who must run their master on an alternate port, if we provided an MSI property that allowed you to configure this.
