A large customer is installing Release Automation Agents as part of their OS build. So any new servers will have agents point to main execution server by default.

 

Not all these servers will be using Release Automation.

 

Either we need to have an ability to blacklist agents from studio (or)

An ability to remove inactive and unreachable agents periodically.

In the same structure as the current "Unreachable Servers", an inactive or disabled agents group would be useful to aid agent mangement. This way the agents remain connected and can be moved back online/ active without the need to manage the agent service directly on the server. Allowing the agents visable in the rest of the automation studio to be tidied up.

 

This would work alongside a good decommision framework.
