FNMS Inventory Agent config corrupt

This is how the corrupt config.ini looks and thes agent would fall into Out of Date Inventory and will never be able to get policy update or upload inventory 

initially i thought it was just missing Download and Upload server info but, since the config file is missing other part it generates inaccurate ndi file.

Appricate if anyone has inputs on this query, I am trying to understand if all of the config.ini setting are populated during installation (which basically will be inputed with FNMS Beacon details) or there are any setting which will be populated with policy update apart from (schedule ).

I am actually trying to do AutoHeal using 3rd party  tool for  FNMS Inventory agents which are Out- of-date, unable to communicate to the beacon due to corrupt config.ini file as in this post.

Settings in config.ini on UNIX-like operating systems are set through various process: some are set as defaults at installation time, some are set through policy, and some are set by various agent processes when they run.

You may want to take a look at the following other recent thread which sounds similar to this one and may have some useful comments for you: Inventory Agent ERROR: No upload servers are configured (tracker.log)

In particular, as per the discussion on that thread, two possible approaches to restoring the configuration of an agent that has got corrupted are as follows.

Uninstall & reinstall

  1. Uninstall the agent
  2. Remove the /var/opt/managesoft directory
  3. Re-install the agent

Re-initialize configuration and re-bootstrap the agent by applying policy

This can be done by executing commands like the following (as a user with root rights):

/opt/managesoft/bin/mgsconfig -i /opt/managesoft/install/default.ini

/opt/managesoft/bin/mgspolicy -t Machine -o DownloadRootURL=http://your-beacon/ManageSoftDL

There's no equivalent to the "mgsconfig -i /opt/managesoft/install/default.ini" command on Windows to reset all configuration settings stored in the Windows registry to vanilla default values. However the following command line can be executed (with local administrator rights) to apply policy on Windows:

"c:\Program Files (x86)\ManageSoft\Policy Client\mgspolicy.exe" -t Machine -o DownloadRootURL=http://your-beacon/ManageSoftDL -o UILevel=Auto
