Description

This task will rename the GatherState.xml and bfemapfile.xml files on the relay and delete the bfsites folder, then restart the BES Relay service to cleanup old sites and reinitialize the gather process. 

When attempting to use this task on all relays, run it first on the bottom tier of relays and work up to the server one tier at a time.

NOTE: This task should be deployed only at the direction of BigFix support.

shlomi -
isn't the success criteria wrong? the applicability is "is the machine a relay", and the success criteria considers successful when the applicability is false, but the task does not remove the relay, hence it will always fail... IMHO, it should be "all lines completed successfully"
