See the configuration file documentation at for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppetmasterdd with '--genconfig'.

daemonize: Send the process into the background. This is the default.

no-daemonize: Do not send the process into the background.

logdest: Where to send messages. Choose between syslog, the

          console, and a log file. Defaults to sending messages to
