Resolution

Remove "Attempt a dry run" from bundle assignment.

Additional Information

Dry run is not used for MAC or Windows bundles.

It is only used for Linux bundles with Install RPM actions. For other types of bundles, "Attempt a dry run" does nothing.

Typical use case of dry run: assign a bundle with dry run. After the agent completes the dry run and sends a message back that dry run is completed, modify the assignment to remove dry run so that the bundle can be installed.

If the dry run flag is not removed, it will try to do a dry run again and fail saying that the dry run is already done.  "Launch Exception type: APP_DRYRUN_DONE".
