Cloning gitlab project branch to puppet server

Hi All,

I am new to gitlab and puppet and trying my hands on it. I have created a small lab setup where I have a gitlab server and one puppet master server. In the gitlab server, I created a group and project for puppet and added the root ssh key in deploy key in the project.

I am able to clone the repository from my own user. But I am not able to clone the project on puppet server using root via ssh. I am sure I am missing some important step(s) but couldn’t figure out what. Any ideas what is wrong.

Working for my user :-
[varun@varun-pc2 ~] pwd /home/varun [varun@varun-pc2 ~] mkdir git
[varun@varun-pc2 ~] cd git [varun@varun-pc2 git] git clone git@gitlab.varun.com:puppet/puppet4
