Description Zhengping Jin 2012-06-26 16:42:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Once agent has been running, the agent will create files in /var/log/jboss-on/agent and /var/lib/agent, which will not be deleted after uninstall.
On the contray, the config file will be /etc/jboss-on/agent/agent-configuration.xml. 
Please modify this procedure.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.1.0

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install the agent: rpm -i *.rpm
2. run the agent: service jon-agent start
3. uninstall the agent: rpm -e *
Actual results:
Files in /var/log/jboss-on/agent and in folder /var/lib/agent will be kept, but 
/etc/jboss-on/agent/agent-configuration.xml will be deleted.

Expected results:
keep the configurations and logs, remove unrelated files

bz triage 7/2 stefan, loleary, asantos, armine, zjin, viet.

some development activity here to do per discussion.

logs should survive
some question on data file
policy on configuration retention
Comment 2 Stefan Negrea 2012-07-03 18:21:58 EDT
The retention policy on the following files/folders should be updated to:
1) /var/log/jboss-on/agent - Keep
2) /etc/jboss-on/agent/agent-configuration.xml - Retain if modified

Further investigation is required for /var/lib/agent folder.
Comment 3 Stefan Negrea 2012-07-10 11:43:24 EDT
Updated retention policy for state directory and agent configuration xml.

The agent has now the following retention policy:
1) State directory - removed by %postun script only on uninstallation, preserved on upgrades
2) agent-configuration.xml- %config(noreplace)
3) Log files - preserved forever
