Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
With this enhancement, the RHEV Agent rhev-agent.ini file is no longer replaced each time a new version of the agent is installed. New configuration files were introduced to contain the system configuration, and so the rhev-agent.ini configuration file is now intended to contain user local configuration overrides. Note that users should be aware that as a consequence a broken configuration will remain even after upgrading or removing and then re-installing a software.

Description Jiri Belka 2014-07-02 14:12:23 UTC
Description of problem:

do not overwrite .ini file dumbly, we have now 'default' and 'default-logger' files in Agent dir, so keep original .ini file. one could change options, rates, log file path... and dumb overwriting is annoying.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install WGT which would put 'default' and 'default-logger' onto filesystem (3.4.8)
2. edit init
3. update to newer WGT

Actual results:

Expected results:
should keep original ini file, any new config options should go to default/default-logger

Additional info:
3.4.9 is not cooked yet

Comment 3 Jiri Belka 2014-08-29 13:21:59 UTC
ok, 3.5.2 (default* replaces, rhev-agent.ini kept)
