How to propagate new bamboo tasks into remote agents?

I am developing a set of tasks for bamboo and regularly try them on a live installation with remote agents - the problem I am facing is that the latest version of the plugin do not get downloaded automatically by the remote agents. The plugin is a V2 plugin, uploaded via the Install function of the UPM. I tried bumping up the plugin version without success ( the first task failed, bamboo claining that there was no such task in the plugin). Re-starting the agent provoles a download of the new version.

Surely I don't need to write a ssh script that will go into every remote agent to reboot them - or should I?

OK, it's confirmed bug, it will be fixed in 5.3.

I think you do, sorry about that. I've opened an improvement request for this:

Edit: I've consulted the developer who has written the plugin 2 support and he said it should work. Could you tell me which version of Bamboo you're using and which module descriptors are used in your plugin?

Alternatively, could I copy my plugin into the plugins folder of the agent? Would the agent pick it up? or should I rename the current existing one?

It's actually something I was wondering : is there a way to upload a version 2 plugin on a bamboo instance without going through the web interface - the typical scenario here is after running atlas-mvn package, deploy the plugin on my local instance to test it out.

I'm using Bamboo 3.4.3 and V2 plugin (tasks).

Let me know if you find a way to go about it - I experimented with one of your suggestion found here, aka creating one plan with 1 job / agent (and adding a name property to all agents) and then restarting the agent in the background, but I'm not facing much success

echo "agent will restart soon"
nohup sleep 10;/opt/bamboo/bin/bamboo-agent-init restart &
exit 0

The plan seems to ignore the nohup and the & and waits - the agent meanwhile shutsdown but does not come back up.
