Description

When updating from 2.7.11 to 2.7.12 on the client sometimes a state file is left behind.

Mar 21 18:15:07 ip-10-170-54-145 puppet-agent[16076]: Starting Puppet client version 2.7.11
Mar 21 18:15:29 ip-10-170-54-145 puppet-agent[16076]: Caught TERM; calling stop
Mar 21 18:15:31 ip-10-170-54-145 puppet-agent[16859]: Reopening log files
Mar 21 18:15:31 ip-10-170-54-145 puppet-agent[16859]: Starting Puppet client version 2.7.12
Mar 21 18:15:31 ip-10-170-54-145 puppet-agent[16859]: Skipping run of Puppet configuration client; administratively disabled; use 'puppet Puppet configuration client --enable' to re-enable.

The resulting error message looks like it’s missing some wording. I’d replace the config client stuff so that it reads as below so the average user can resolve the problem quickly.

Skipping run of Puppet configuration client; administratively disabled; use 'puppet agent --enable' to re-enable.
