When an agent is administratively disabled, the following error is displayed:

root@fc-wrform01:~$ puppet agent -t notice: Skipping run of Puppet configuration client; administratively disabled; use ‘puppet Puppet configuration client —enable’ to re-enable.

This syntax does not make sense. It should read:

‘puppet agent —enable’
