Compatibility Incompatible - Manual interaction might be required

This werk only affects users using the Windows agent plugins 'windows_if.ps1' or 'wmic_if.bat' (bakery ruleset 'Network interfaces on Windows') or the plugin 'mk_dhcp_enabled.bat'.

The above mentioned plugins have been restructured to improve code maintainability. As a result, users need to update the agents on Windows systems where one of these plugins is installed.

The Windows interface check will go critical if these agents are not updated. Furthermore, without an update, the data produced by these plugins will not be processed by Checkmk.

In case interfaces are monitored using their aliases as items, the interface checks on affected hosts might also report "Item not found in monitoring data" and go UNKNOWN. Updating the agent will fix this issue as well.
