      Description

      Reported by Roman Mueller in EZ-84:

      After installing puppetserver or puppetdb on CentOS 6 a pid file is automatically created although the service is not being started.

      Example:

      [root@centos6 vagrant]# yum -y install puppetserver
      (...)                                                                                                                                                            
       
      Complete!
      [root@centos6 vagrant]# service puppetserver status
      puppetserver dead but pid file exists
      [root@centos6 vagrant]# cat /var/run/puppetlabs/puppetserver/puppetserver 
       
      [root@centos6 vagrant]#
      

      The pid file should not get automatically created, only the folder containing it.
      Same is happening with puppetdb.
