Many postings about this on the google result-pages but no clear solution.

It happens on most agents. Don't know if it happens after virtual migration(s).

systemctl restart qemu-guest-agent fixes it and now i'm thinking to get this scheduled on all our vm's if "dead".

What could be the reason of this?
