Configuration of text file logging for Windows agents

Running checkmk RAW - 2.0.0p7 (CRE)

I am trying to monitor a text log file on a Windows system and I’m not having a lot of success. So far, what I understand is that you have to use the and add it to ProgramData\checkmk\agent\local and (which doesn’t appear to be a proper zip file as opening/extracting it fails). I have a config logwatch.cfg in ProgramData\checkmk\agent\config. When I put into c:\ProgramData\checkmk\agent\install\modules and restart the checkmk service it attempts to process the file but errors out saying:

2021-08-09 17:38:43.693 [srv 4616] Reading module config normal

2021-08-09 17:38:43.715 [srv 4616] [Err ] Error during NameSpace 1 /unzip/. The file is ‘C:\ProgramData\checkmk\agent\install\modules\’

Also, the file is removed/deleted from the directory I placed it. So I’m trying to follow the process (as I’ve read up on forums since the documentation on this appears to be non-existent) but it does not seem to want to work at a basic level.

I’m sure I’m doing something wrong, but all my googling and looking at checkmk documentation does not seem to have helped yet. Any help is appreciated.


Same problem … more details, unfortunately only in german
