Is it possible to set host groups yet without the need for reinstall?

Anyone know if it is possible yet to set a host group for the first time on OneAgents which currently exist without the need for reinstall?

Thanks!

yes thats correct, you can but it will require a recycle of the oneagent process/Service FYI. Even if you did not define the host group at the time of install.

Right, but I think that is only if you installed the OneAgent and called out a host group at that time. I am wondering if it is possible to now use that to configure a host group on OneAgents where host group was never used before without the need to reinstall.

I believe so, however this still requires an agent restart

Yes, you can set it via --set-host-group and there is even a convenient --restart-service you can add to do the stop/change/start of the oneagent service from a one liner, so it looks like this:

./oneagentctl --set-host-group EasyTravel_WebServer_Dev --restart-service
