|Checkmk Edition||Checkmk Raw Edition (CRE)|
|Compatibility||Incompatible - Manual interaction might be required|
The AIX agent plugin mk_logwatch.aix has been renamed to mk_errpt.aix. The plugins name wrongly suggested that it was a version of mk_logwatch designed to run on AIX machines.
In fact, mk_errpt.aix (formerly known as mk_logwatch.aix) is a Korn-shell plugin that will forward all errors reported by the command line tool errpt in a way that will create a logwatch service on the monitoring server.
mk_logwatch, on the other hand, is a python plugin. It should run on any machine as long as python is installed, in particular it is known to run on AIX machines.
These two plugins can be deployed independently from one another.
