|Title||Network interfaces: Handle illegal description/alias characters differently|
|Checkmk Edition||Checkmk Raw Edition (CRE)|
|Compatibility||Incompatible - Manual interaction might be required|
The removal of illegal characters from interface descriptions and aliases is now handled consistently.
Some services may go to UNKNOWN for users who have configured the use of descriptions or aliases in the service description. This will only happen if the interface desription or alias did indeed contain one of the characters
If this is the case, please perform a rediscovery. For every affected interface you will be informed of one vanished an one new service by the same name. Performance data will not be lost.
