Checkmk Version 2.1.0i1
Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

On Windows systems, the PostgreSQL agent plugin (mk_postgres) now looks for the PostgreSQL binary psql.exe in additional places. Before, the plugin only checked C:\Program Files\PostgreSQ\. Now, the plugin checks

  • Program Files\PostgreSQL\
  • Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL\
  • PostgreSQL\
for every logical drive and uses the first found binary.

This means that the plugin might now run on systems it previously didn't run on. Note that you first have to update the Checkmk agent of affected hosts.
