Which statement about agent-based versus agentless configuration management tools is true?
- A. Agentless tools use proxy nodes to interface with slave nodes.
- B. Agentless tools require no messaging systems between master and slaves.
- C. Agent-based tools do not require a high-level language interpreter such as Python or Ruby on slave nodes.
- D. Agent-based tools do not require installation of additional software packages on the slave nodes.
Explanation: Agentless tool means that no software or agent needs to be installed on the client machines that are to be managed. Ansible is such an agentless tool. In contrast to agentless tool, agent-based tool requires software or agent to be installed on the client. Therefore the master and slave nodes can communicate directly without the need of high-level language interpreter.
An agentless tool uses standard protocols, such as SSH, to push configurations down to a device (and it can be considered a “messaging system”).
