      • As an administrator I should be able to interactively run puppet agent no matter the original installation method.

      Customers might assume that running puppet agent -t it would have the same result as a normal puppet daemon run, but it doesn't because puppet runs as LOCALSYSTEM when it's a daemon, but as the user calling it when it's run as puppet agent -t.

      It would seem as though we want puppet to assign permissions to the LocalAdministrator group no matter which user it runs under(LOCALSYSTEM or a administrator) to avoid these oddities.
