      Description

      On a 2016.4.3 master with the latest puppet_agent and transition modules:

       root@pe-201643-master  ~  puppet module list | egrep "agent|transition"
      ├── puppetlabs-puppet_agent (v1.3.2)
      ├── puppetlabs-transition (v0.1.1)
      

      I am using the puppet_agent class to upgrade the AIX 7.1 agent from 1.5.2 to 1.7.2. I'm applying the class:

          class {'puppet_agent':
            package_version= '1.7.2',
          }
      

      Before upgrade:

      [0] [AIX] root@pe-aix-71-support:~ # lssrc -a | egrep "puppet|pxp|mcollective"
       puppet                            10092766     active
       pxp-agent                         13435122     active
       mcollective                       12189816     active
      [0] [AIX] root@pe-aix-71-support:~ # /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin/puppet --version
      4.5.2
      

      After upgrade via a puppet run:

      [0] [AIX] root@pe-aix-71-support:~ # /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/bin/puppet --version
      4.7.1
      [0] [AIX] root@pe-aix-71-support:~ # lssrc -a | egrep "puppet|pxp|mcollective"
       pxp-agent                         10092726     active
       mcollective                       12189824     active
       puppet                                         inoperative
      

      So AIX agents upgraded with the puppet_agent module end up disabled and never check back into the master without intervening to start the puppet agent process back up.
