After agent update to a 2.1 linux agent (prepackaged and bakery versions) on RPM based systems, the agent installation may end up with missing systemd units or a missing xinetd service file.

As a workaround, or to recover from an agent installtion with broken super-server, agents can be reinstalled once manually with cmk-update-agent --reinstall or cmk-update-agent --force to restore the missing file(s). Subsequent agent updates won't run into the same problem again.

With this Werk, the initial agent update to version 2.1 won't run into the problem in the first place.
