Description Joseph Marques 2008-06-17 18:37:00 EDT
support "locking" of resource configuration properties and plugin configuration properties.  once a property is marked locked, the JON Server will keep track of incoming changes.  if there is an attempt to make a change to a "locked" property, the JON Server will send a request back down to the agent to override the resourceConfig / pluginConfig as appropriate (with whatever value the locked properties were locked with, merged with the recent/previous update from the agent).

This is a pretty decent sized feature. Push to scoping process.

patch to introduce resource config remediation

The attached patch is something I coded up in December of 2009 that performs resource configuration remeditation. When a configuration changes and the agent reports that change, the server can detect that a locked config changed and immediately tell the agent to revert the configuration back to what it was. I blogged (with a demo) this functionality here: http://management-platform.blogspot.com/2009/12/configuration-remediation.html

This could be useful if we get more into applying policy.

FYI: here's the demo of the prototype I wrote a long time ago:
