|Title||Prevent baked tar.gz agents from changing ownership of files on host|
|Checkmk Edition||Checkmk Enterprise Edition (CEE)|
|Compatibility||Compatible - no manual interaction needed|
When extracting a tar.gz packaged agent from the agent bakery as root (as it is normallly done), the user and group ownerships of the extracted files would be set to the Check_MK site user, if such user is available on the target host. This would lead to a wrong ownership on some folders like "/etc", "/usr" and "/var".
In order to prevent this, the agent bakery now creates the tar.gz packages correctly by setting an ownership of "root".
