Completely reinitialize a Node

You may want to completely reinitialize a Node to make it seen as a new node on the server, for example after cloning a VM.


This command will permanently delete your node uuid and keys, and no configuration will be applied before re-accepting and configuring the node on the server.

The command to reinitialize a Node is:

rudder agent reinit

This command will delete all local agent data, including its uuid and keys, and also reset the agent internal state. The only configuration kept is the server hostname or ip configured in policy_server.dat. It will also send an inventory to the server, which will treat it as a new node inventory.
