I fail to get the hostname translation for piggybacked hosts working for Docker containers.
On the docker host (dockerhost03), I’ve set “container_id: name”.
There’s a container named “mailer” on the host. Now everything works fine when I set up a checkmk host named “mailer”. The piggydata is in tmp/check_mk/piggyback/mailer/dockerhost03.
But I’d like to map this container to a host named “stage-mailer”.
I’ve set up a “Hostname translation for piggybacked hosts” with an “explicit hostname mapping” from “mailer” to “stage-mailer”. I’ve also set up up a new host “stage-mailer”.
But the host “stage-mailer” won’t pick up the piggyback data. Instead, the host “mailer” still picks up the piggyback data of the container as if there was no translation rule.
I also tried a regex rule instead of the explicit mapping, also with no effect.
A “full scan” of the host “stage-mailer” always shows:
Starting job... + FETCHING DATA [piggyback] Execute data source No piggyback files for 'stage-mailer'. Skip processing. Completed.
The piggyback data of the container still is in “tmp/check_mk/piggyback/mailer/dockerhost03”. Is this the expected behavior with a piggyback mapping active?
Any hint where I’m making a mistake?
