After disabling a remote agent in Bamboo, how do I re-enable it?

In the Bamboo admin screen, I selected one of my remote agents (build machines) and clicked the Disable button. But there's no Enable button to be found.

How do I re-enable this remote agent?

Using 5.5.1 (build 4306).

Solved it, finally.

Once you disable a remote agent, it disappears from the Online Remote Agents tab and appears in the Offline Remote Agents tab. Of course, there's no Enable button in the Offline Remote Agents tab.

Unfortunately, "restarting" the agent does NOT fix this:

    ./bamboo-agent-home/bin/ restart

The solution was to stop and then start the agent:

    ./bamboo-agent-home/bin/ stop
    ./bamboo-agent-home/bin/ start

At this point, the agent reappeared in the Online Remote Agents tab, which meant I could re-enable it.

Very frustrating.

Glad that you were able to get it up. Still strange that restart didnt work :)

Which version of bamboo are you using?

Using 5.5.1 (build 4306). Thanks!

Ideally there would be disable/enable and delete options in the bamboo page. If you dont find that option, did you try to start the remote agent manually?

Thanks for the reply. No "Enable" option. In fact, the help site you sent me to is titled, "Disabling or deleting an agent." No mention of enabling an agent. I tried starting (restarting) the remote agent manually. No luck.
