Trying to understand what you want to do, as puppet has native resource
type for this :

class selinux::booleans::httpd_can_network_connect {

  selboolean {'httpd_can_network_connect':
      value => on,
      persistent => true,

So why are you trying to use Exec resource type mixed with unless ?
