      We should clean up our own mess correctly. It appears that this would have to occur in the puppet_agent module as we are unlikely to release an updated 3.8 agent that uninstalls correctly on AIX.

      The may see errors on boot up as this inittab is left but the pe-mcollective service is no longer present.

      Zendesk Customer issue: https://puppetlabs.zendesk.com/agent/tickets/24948

      Using the puppet_agent module, and upgrading the agent version from 3.8.x doesn't remove the following entry from /etc/inittab:

      pe-mcollective:2:once:/usr/bin/startsrc -s pe-mcollective
      

      The current workaround is to log onto the host and execute /opt/puppet/bin/puppet resource service pe-mcollective enable=false --prior to upgrade.

      Desired Behavior:

      As part of the upgrade process, the module should check for a corresponding pe-mcollective entry in /etc/inittab and remove it once the agent is successfully upgraded.

      Actual Behavior:

      The entry for pe-mcollective remains in /etc/inittab, causing delays when the host is rebooted.
