It looks like the example in puppet-cloudstack might be overriding the script behaviour. It's just deploying from RPMs placed on
the yumrepo. So you might want to do the same and point your puppet
recipe to the repo. With 4.0 onwards the script has been
retired and yum repos are the natural way to go.

On RHEL systems - createrepo can manage the xml-rpm-metadata creation
that yum will need. If that's not an option you'll have to Exec[] the script in your recipe.
