server log

Comment 3 John Sanda 2011-10-04 18:32:25 UTC
This situation is not specific to drift. This situation occurs any time the server sends a request to an agent that is down or otherwise unreachable. I believe that we display a message in the UI indicating as such, and I also think that the exception in the log is very descriptive. Here is the exception message from the attached server log file,

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Agent could not be reached and may be down (see server logs for more). Could not perform drift detection request [DriftConfiguration [id=10001, name=File System, enabled=true, interval=60, resource=Resource[id=10001, type=Linux, key=foleymonsterbox1.foleyhomenetwork, name=foleymonsterbox1.foleyhomenetwork, parent=<null>, version=Linux], basedir=BaseDirectory [context=fileSystem, name=/home/mfoley/folderwatchedbyDrift], includes=[], excludes=[]]]
