During package upgrades, check no processes are orphaned before trying to start up the new service

Hello all,

During a package upgrade, is there any way to ensure puppet does a check to ensure no processes were left over running, orphaned before trying to start a new service associated with the new package just rolled out?

I have come across an issue where puppet fails to start up a service after an upgrade, because there are still old processes belonging to the old package version in the background.... After killing the orphaned processes, puppet is able to start the service accordingly.

Thanks in advance.

No, there is not.

Contribute to the project and fix the package.

This is a failing in the package manager rather than in puppet and, as such, should be fixed in the package rather than in puppet.

What package manager is this?

The package manager in question is yum
