Werk #15423: Linux agent: Handle failing symmetric encryption
|Component||Checks & agents|
|Title||Linux agent: Handle failing symmetric encryption|
|Date||Mar 31, 2023|
|Checkmk Edition||Checkmk Raw (CRE)|
|Checkmk Version||2.3.0b1 2.2.0b3 2.1.0p26 2.0.0p35|
|Compatibility||Compatible - no manual interaction needed|
Prior to this Werk the symmetric encryption of agent data (if configured) would fail silently if the option "Run agent as non-root user (Linux)" was also set, since these two options are not compatible. As a result, agent output would be sent unencrypted.
If symmetric encryption is configured, but failing, the agent will now abort immediately and transmit a message about the failure as the only output.
This will then be reported at the Check_MK Agent service of the host, alongside a CRIT status.
