Description John Mazzitelli 2010-07-28 12:33:28 EDT
Sometimes an agent's inventory might go out of sync (usually due to some unforseen bug). If this happens, the only way to correct it would be to restart the agent VM with --cleanconfig or --purgedata option. It would be nice to have an agent prompt command to have it do this without killing the VM. Even if it was something like the "plugins update" command where that just shuts down the PC, downloads the plugins and restarts the PC without taking down the entire VM. Something like: inventory --sync which would shutdown the PC, delete the inventory.dat file, then restart the PC.

did a quick implementation - "inventory --sync" now purges the inventory and restarts the PC so the inventory is synced master commit: 148c25cc279be5f96923c149fc0530512afdb9a0

Verified on RHQ Build#511 Entered the command inventory --sync at agent prompt. > inventory --sync The plugin container has been stopped. Purged the persisted inventory found at [data/inventory.dat], sync will occur when plugin container restarts The plugin container has been started. Need to verify documentation for --sync option.

Bulk closing of issues that were VERIFIED, had no target release and where the status changed more than a year ago.
