Description

When an agent is executed it'll check it's servers' UUID.
This is done using http, regardless of the setting here:
common/1.0/site.st: "inventory_upload_protocol" string => "https";

We've long put a redirect in place but found this is not being followed by curl.
It fetches the redirect message, and decides it doesn't parse as a legit UUID.

Adding -L to the general rudder curl options seems (to me) be a nice way of cleaning this.
If a redirect is encountered, curl then follows it (i.e. to https on same system), and the content check stays still in place.

I don't know if it can be done for minicurl and what you have on Windows.
