Hi,

I think it is a very bad idea to add attributes related to XIVmirror agent into types.cf directly.

Here is the scenarios:

say in the future we run a RP patch and there is a change in types.cf. you can't then simply copy the one in /opt/VRTSvcs/conf to /opt/VRTSvcs/conf/config a lot of times the agents won't be udpated at the same time.

Here is what I would like to propose instead.

why not do it like the OracleTypes.cf. 

create a separate XIVMirror.cf and include that into main.cf?

I would believe the following script would need to be updated.

/etc/VRTSvcs/conf/sample_xivmirror/addXIVMirrorType.sh
