Issues related to Puppets management of file permissions under Windows, and management of Puppets files.

As a Windows Administrator

I want to be able to run puppet as any user with Administrative privileges without preventing other users with Administrative privileges (such as the puppet service) from running puppet successfully

So that I don't have to perform unsupported workaround to reenable puppet on my environment.


Currently, if there are two Administrator users, depending on execution order, the puppet agent service can be denied access to puppet configuration and cache data that is required for puppet to run successfully.

Workaround: flush the cache data.

Ethan Brown should we consider moving the remaining items here to a different epic (now that Puppet 6 has shipped) and closing this one out?
