Hi Guys,

One of our customers are having an issue with the contents of /etc/cron.d/* not being processed correctly and have decided to use crontab instead (until the issue is resolved).

However, our PuppetMaster is set to enforce the usage of /etc/cron.d/* and delete any crons under /var/spool/cron/ (once puppet agent -t is run).

Is there a way (perhaps in site.pp) to prevent the deletion of /var/spool/cron/ ?

Thank you.
