I have installed the check_mk agent on a CentOS Linux host and on a Windows 2019 Server both on my VMWare cluster. I was able to manually find a Ubuntu host and a switch. I have been for ther last 2 hours trying to figure out why the bulk discovery feature will NOT find the hosts with the agent installed on it. I’m UBER frustrated at this point. Does this feature not work the way I thought (like Nagios Auto Discover)? Firewall is not up on the windows host and on the CentOS host I have configured firewallD to communicate on TCP port 6556. I can telnet from the check_mk instance to the hosts the agent is installed and I get output so clearly basic communication isnt impeded.
WTH. Can someone please help me understand what I’m doing wrong. After a week and half of trialing other products this seems almost good enough…but this bulk add feature is a deal breaker. I have over 100 Virtual servers I need to absorb in here. I plan to install the agent on the windows host via Desktop Central on the Linux hosts via Ansible so I’ll be able to get the client on the hoss fine.
How. Do. I. autodiscover all the hosts that have the agent installed (or SMNP enabled because at this point I doubt that will work either)?
