How to force GMS primary agent to reclaim a unit under backup agent management
We recently upgraded from GMS 8.7 to GMS 9.2. We have a 2-agent distributed installation with one also acting as the console and database server. For the purposes of this post we'll call the console agent "console" and the other agent "agent 2." We had our c. 600 units evenly distributed between the 2 agents in GMS 8.7. Shortly after we imported the units into GMS 9.2 for some reason a large number of units assigned to the "console" ended up being actively managed by "agent 2." Now "agent 2" is bogging down at summarization because of the large number of syslog files it has to process. I tried moving some of the units under active management by "agent 2" back to "console," but changing the primary and backup agents in the re-assign unit action seems to make no change. When I do it no new tasks are created and the units continue to be managed by "agent 2." I guess I shouldn't be surprised, since the units are already configured to use "console" as their primary agent. Trouble is, I can't find a way to force GMS to have "console" manage the units again. Any idea how I can make this happen?
