Hi I would like to know what would happen if I run multiple remote agents on different machines with the same id (i.e. same name, UUID and agentId). Would only 1 agent be active, trumping all others before it or would all the agents be valid and somehow share the same id, effectively distributing the load across the agents. From what I can see the agents are all started without any issue but it seems only 1 agent is actually active in picking up the load. So I just want to confirm.

Hi @Steven Tay

Bambo uses the agent UUID to identify each agent and authenticate it. The agent will be approved or not and its references on capabilities will be kept based on that UUID.

It means that if all your agents have the same UUID only the first one to authenticated will be able to take builds.
