Is anyone updating their BESAgents for RHEL/CentOS outside of BigFix? We are hoping to use both BigFix and a yum repo to offer updates but have hit a road block.
We are looking to utilize a shared repo to make BigFix available as a fresh install and update for hard-core early adopter Linux lovers. BUT prior to removing the old agent, the BESAgent service is stopped, and is not started again after the old agent has been removed. This leaves the system in a state of having the latest version of BESAgent, but does not start the agent automatically.
We could modify the RPM postun section to start/restart the service, but that adds additional overhead for each upgrade. In addition future upgrades pushed via BigFix would negate the customizations, unless we overwrote the default installer.
Is there any way to use BOTH BigFix & a RHEL Repository to update endpoints, or are we stuck with one or the other?
