I recently tried to upgrade old 1.2.6p11 to the latest and greatest 1.6.0p11 installed on debian 8, and that did not go very well, so I decided to follow the advice from the check_mk website, and build a completely new server, latest debian 10, and install Raw 1.6.0p11, and then import the hosts from the old version.
That worked better than the upgraded version, but still have quite a few issues.
One of the issues is this:
- check_mk: ERROR: Duplicate service description ‘NTP Time’ for host ‘hostname’! - 1st occurrance: checktype = chrony, item = None - 2nd occurrance: checktype = ntp.time, item = None
What is interesting is that when I edit services for this host, I see a duplicate:
And from here if I click to move this broken (duplicate) sensor to disabled services - nothing happens. And if I move both NTP sensors to undecided, then I can disable them both, but that’s not really what I want.
What is even more interesting is that this is the case for 5 totally random hosts. There are 15 other hosts that have this NTP sensor and it works fine there, on old and new check_mk version.
Note that I still have old check_mk, and that NTP sensor works fine there, for those 5 problematic hosts.
Anyone else had the same issue? Any ideas where to look at?
