@MichaelHampton - Doh! Yes, just running "yum clean all" then "yum install puppet" fixed the issue. Thanks for your help. You can submit this as an answer if you want the reputation.

@MichaelHampton - that is possible, I initially installed the EL6 yum repo rpm, but then uninstalled it when I realized my mistaked. Are there other steps necessary for clearing things out?

comment Restarting Network through SSH
Yeah, that won't work. The "service network restart" actually calls a shell script, but internally it just runs stop then start. The ssh session gets cut off after the stop and the start never happens. Screen or nohup is the answer. Note, I've done this through screen and it actually preserved the existing ssh session for me (just a bit of lag), but it will not without screen. DANGER WILL ROBINSON: this is a good way to loose access to the remote system entirely (if you loose the connection, no debugging, you're just hosed).

No this is actually a bit of script to go in the uninstaller for an application. I figured out a solution that works and added an answer for it though.

Unfortunately, I can't depend on powershell since XP doesn't have it by default. I need support for XP, server 2008, and 7, all without installing any additional software.

@Ben Pilbrow That didn't work for me either. wmic isn't getting the path name (just returns "PathName" with nothing on the following line). Not sure if this is because there are a lot of parameters embedded in the path making it very long.
