Your service definition for puppet should not be run if puppet is already
running. Can you provide me with your service definition? I suspect you do not
have the 'hasstatus => true' set.

If you are running the puppet agent, and the puppet daemon is not running, and
--oknodo is set in the initscript for start, and you have a service definition
that attempts to start puppet, all that will happen is you will get a zero
result code when the service definition starts and puppet wont be run a second
