      Puppet Version: 4.10.0
      Puppet Server Version: 7.1
      OS Name/Version: RHEL 7.1

      Puppet Agent server: Windows 2012 R2

      I am trying to run 6 puppet manifests on 50 Windows servers to install Citrix, ms-office, winbeat, filebeat, uipath, and configure some system registry keys, but every time I run "puppet agent -t" cmd on the nodes, after running configuration from a few of manifests, it is opening internet explorer and asking to kill iexplore processes (running as the background processes in task manager), even though I have not mentioned any such cmd/rule/line in manifests -


      " Notice: /Stage[main]/Beats/Notify[Starting filebeat...]/message: Starting filebeat*...*

      Notice: /Stage[main]/Beats/Notify[Starting filebeat...]/message: defined 'message' as 'Starting filebeat*...'*

      Confirm All [N] No Are you sure you want to perform the Stop-Process operation on the following item: iexplore*(10192)? [Y] Yes [A] Yes to [L] No to All [S] Suspend [?] Help(default is "Y"): "*


      and the catalog fails to apply successfully when it gets no response for the killing of iexplore proc. If iexplore is running in the 'Apps' tab in task manager (i.e. when I manually run iexplore in the foreground to test), while manifests are running, iexplore proc is killed by itself and then the catalog is applied successfully. If no iexplore proc is running, the catalog is applied successfully on nodes.

      Can someone please help explain to me what is the reason for this automatic iexplore proc termination while running puppet manifest on agents and how can we prevent his from happening cos in background iexplore will always run on my nodes?Describe your issue in as much detail as possible…
      Describe steps to reproduce…

      Desired Behavior:

      "Applied Catalog successfully"

      Actual Behavior:

      Are you sure you want to perform the Stop-Process operation on the following
      item: iexplore(10192)?
      [Y] Yes [A] Yes to All [N] No [L] No to All [S] Suspend [?] Help
      (default is "Y"):Error: Command exceeded timeout
