Hello! Thank you for your patience - our team has grown to like CheckMK. I am starting to learn as much as I can. But I have many questions that the forums and Google can’t seem to answer.
First - is it safe to run the v2 Beta in multi-instance (multisite)? Can one agent report back to two difference instances? Sorry, I couldn’t easily find these confirmed other than the instance needs to be strictly newer than the agent. I’m quite keen to see how v2 looks and feels.
Second; as I understand, the instance knows the CheckMK host name, and reaches out to register and monitor the host. Setting up a baked agent its the host instead needs to know the CheckMK host name, a password, and register back to the instance? Is there an option for CheckMK to reach out and perform this step instead? I don’t see any way to automate this at agent install without distributing a password and without the ‘CheckMK host name’.
Third - what is the greatest overlooked features tips or plugins of CheckMK that people forget to use? Overlooked “low hanging fruit” as such! I’m always fascinated by what people have learned and what newbies miss.
Thank you for your kind help!
