Previously the Linux agent delievered the output of 'ip link' which is a subset of 'ip address'. Now the agent uses 'ip address'. The inventory plugin mk_inventory also executed 'ip address'. This has been removed from the agent plugin mk_inventory. The related inventory plugin 'lnx_if_a' has also been removed. Instead the inventory plugin 'lnx_if' processes the IP addresses.

In order to use this feature you have to deploy the Linux agent and mk_inventory agent plugin.
