    Description

      On AIX, Puppet services are not restarted after upgrades from puppet-agent 1.4.0 and later.

      Install puppet-agent 1.3.6 and start puppet:

      # rpm -ivh http://builds.puppetlabs.lan/puppet-agent/1.3.6/artifacts/aix/7.1/PC1/ppc/puppet-agent-1.3.6-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm

      puppet-agent                ##################################################
      # startsrc -s puppet
      0513-059 The puppet Subsystem has been started. Subsystem PID is 17170448.
      

      Upgrade puppet-agent 1.3.6 to 1.4.1. Note that puppet is not running after the upgrade. (This is a known issue.):

      # rpm -Uvh http://builds.puppetlabs.lan/puppet-agent/1.4.1/artifacts/aix/7.1/PC1/ppc/puppet-agent-1.4.1-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm

      # lssrc -s puppet
      Subsystem         Group            PID          Status
       puppet                                         inoperative
      

      Start puppet:

      # startsrc -s puppet
      0513-059 The puppet Subsystem has been started. Subsystem PID is 16973976.
      

      Upgrade puppet-agent 1.4.1 to 1.4.2. After upgrade, note that puppet is still running, with the same PID:

      # rpm -Uvh http://builds.puppetlabs.lan/puppet-agent/1.4.2/artifacts/aix/7.1/PC1/ppc/puppet-agent-1.4.2-1.aix7.1.ppc.rpm

      # lssrc -s puppet
      Subsystem         Group            PID          Status
       puppet                            16973976     active
