      Description

      Current behaviour:

      • puppet agent on Windows starts ruby.exe, that takes some time to launch, then ruby checks for an existing agent PID file and exits if puppet agent is already running

      Suggestion:

      • Improve this so that puppet agent exits immediately. The time to launch ruby can be significant (~12 seconds on our Windows 2008 vmpooler VMs) and may cause complications with newer PE features that run puppet on demand.
