Duplicate Agent ID detection and automatic re-provisioning

This behavior applies to Windows Agent 1.5.5+ and Linux/Mac Agent 1.6.0+

 

Here's how the Cloud Agent Platform helps to manage duplicate agent IDs:

- Platform automatically enforces unique Agent IDs for an asset in those cases where the agent is installed in gold images, cloud server instances, VM templates, and other OS cloning technologies.

- Platform will automatically detect a duplicate Agent ID, trigger the agent to provision with a new Agent ID, and transfer any scan results to that new ID.
