Configuring Windows domain and forest on a new Puppet agent node

The Puppet vRO Plug-in contains features to install and run a Puppet agent on provisioned nodes. Configure networking on newly provisioned nodes to allow the download of the install and request a certificate from the primary server. Set up the domain and forest configuration on Windows hosts before running the "Install PE Agent on Windows Node” workflow to allow for installation of the agent and potential classification of the node into a defined environment.
