You'll want to set the daemonize parameter to false.

Once that is done, invoke puppet remotely, via cron, or however you want.

Thank you! can you please provide example of agent config to disable daemonize?

In your `[agent]` section of puppet.conf, just add `daemonize = false`.

On our network we leave the puppet daemon stopped on client systems. A cron is used for daily check-ins and to run updates manually we use the mcollective puppet agent.
