Werk #4073: Cleaned up cluster host handling in HW/SW inventory

Component HW/SW inventory
Title Cleaned up cluster host handling in HW/SW inventory
Date Nov 25, 2016
Checkmk Edition Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.4.0i3
Level Trivial Change
Class Bug Fix
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

Previously the manual inventory calls on the command line were not possible on the command line, but when adding a "Check_MK inventory" service to a cluster host, the inventory was tried and did work in case the cluster has a host address configured.

These differences have now been cleaned up and changed a bit.

You can perform the inventory now on command line and add a "Check_MK inventory" service to the hosts, but the regular inventory with all the plugins is not performed against cluster hosts. Instead the clusters only get the following inventory nodes added:

  • Software > Applications > Check_MK > Cluster > Cluster host: Yes
  • Software > Applications > Check_MK > Cluster > Nodes: List of nodes

The first node is also added to all other hosts but set to No. You can then use a filter to include or exclude the hosts of your choice from your inventory list views.
