Checkmk Version 1.2.7i1
Level Prominent Change
Class Bug Fix
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

The internal code for the service discovery has been writting. The previous name for that feature was "inventory" but the word inventory is now being used for hardware/software-inventory. The option --check-inventory has been renamed into --check-discovery.

Several bugs have been fixed while doing the new implementation. One prominent bug was service discovery on clusters. Another problem that has been fixed was that when during cmk -II a host was not reachable its services would have been lost.
