It is now possible to configure hosts in Check_MK that have no IP address configured. This is useful e.g. in case a host is only monitored using piggyback data from another host.
In previous versions of Check_MK a fake IP address had to be configured for each host to prevent warning messages during config generation and during monitoring.
To configure a host without IP, simply set the "IP address family" attribute of a host to "No IP".
The host check of these hosts will always report "UP" by default. To override this, you can use the rule set "Host check command".To the list of all Werks
