Bug #11715

closed

When "policy-server.dat" is missing, generated inventory is not legit

Added by Nicolas CHARLES over 3 years ago. Updated over 2 years ago.

Status:
Released
Priority:
N/A
Category:
Agent
Target version:
Severity:
Minor - inconvenience | misleading | easy workaround
User visibility:
Operational - other Techniques | Technique editor | Rudder settings
Effort required:
Very Small
Priority:
0

Description

When we install the rudder-agent, it can assume that the defaut Rudder server is named "rudder" - when policy-server.dat is non existant, techniques fallback to "rudder"
However, the generated inventory is incomplete: if policy-server.dat file is not there, then the section RUDDER/AGENT is not created on the inventory, so generated inventory is invalid

We should decide which behaviour is the right one, and be consistent

We should just create the file when it's missing (with the default we want) and inventory will use it.
