Right, it is not a very good idea to bake an admin password in the Puppet
scripts. Couple options you can follow:

- Install clients using pre-created one time password or host keytab (you need
to create the client host entry first)

- If you still want to use the privileged account to enroll the client, you can
also pass it's password to ipa-client-install stdin, when it's running it
unattended mode. This way you will avoid having it baked in your configs 
  # cat /root/enrollman_password | ipa-client-install --unattended --principal
