bkr-update-inventory — Submits a inventory job for the system
bkr update-inventory [options] [--xml | --pretty-xml] [--dry-run | --wait] [<fqdn>…]
Submits a job to scan the given system and update its hardware details recorded in Beaker. The Beaker server will automatically select the most suitable distro tree based on the system’s architecture and the availability of the distro trees.
If you want to customize the distro selection or add other tasks to the job, use bkr machine-test --inventory instead. That command supports the complete set of workflow options for customizing your job.
Common bkr options are described in the Options section of bkr(1).
(Note: this command requires Python 2.6 or later)
