Linux Agent now recognizes disks without a partition table like Xen virtual disks with no partition table. To enable this feature, add the following line to the Linux CDP Agent configuration file:
For more information on editing the CDP Linux Agent configuration, see: Linux Agent Configuration.
To activate partitionless discovery on a Linux machine, follow the step below.
1. Make sure you have a license for the new Agent.
2. Install the Agent software on the server that you would like to use this solution on. See Installing the Linux Agent.
Make sure you use version 1.73 or higher.
3. On the Agent machine, change the agent_config to support partionless disks. For details, refer to Linux Agent Configuration.
Then reboot the machine.
4. Once you have completed the previous steps, add the new Host to the CDP Server.
If you are having issues with the partitions not showing up, and you have the partitionless option enabled on the Agent, then remove the Host from the CDP Server and add it again. It should detect it with the correct partition types under devices.
