A-ha! Better later then ever... ;-)))

Ok. I've grabbed thru php code, and not founding a single 'exec()'
function i supposed also that GLPI does not exec the agent, but use an
agent (via the internel protocol, via TCP/IP) to do a SNMP discovery.
I have all my agents running on cron, so clearly there's no agent
running. ;)

This indeed explain me the 'Auto management dynamic of agent': by
default GLPI polls for every registered agent and use a random agent to
do discovery (probably to share load). Right?

So i've started the agent as a daemon on the same server that run GLPI
and ''lock'' the agent choice to the only agent running.

Now, if i start a task, at least end with status OK, but still does not
work, eg, there's no SNMP data catched.
A 'discovery' task still does not work (return error).

Ok, but windows is just on 2.2: i can use a windows agent to make some
test? I'm a bit scared to do a manual installation...
