appreciate it if you would take some time (~15 min) to give us your feedback:

Please send general feedback, feedback on the new user experience, and bug
reports to this dedicated mail address:

Finished update.

After updating my CRE to 2.0.0b2 (coming from 2.0.0b1) my snmp-based hosts stopped working.
UNKN - [snmp] UNKN, Got no information from host, execution time 0.0 sec
Interestingly they still work flawless when running cmk --check hostname on the shell.
Rolling back to 2.0.0b1 fixed this.

Hi

I have the same as Sven wrote. When I try to download Agent / Bulk Output from that host it will run forever wirhout any timeout.
I‘ll Send that to feedback later, too.

Me too - only my SNMP based checks will run into an error. If I go to the service detection I got the right output but still have the " UNKN - [snmp] UNKN, Got no information from host, execution time 0.0 sec" issue

Thank you for testing @Sven_Ludwig/@marass/@Overlord - we identified the problem and it will be fixed in the next beta release.
