ich bekomme beim Update von p5 auf p8 nun folgenden Fehler:

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/omd/versions/2.1.0p8.cee/lib/python3/omdlib/main.py", line 4665, in main

PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/omd/apache/checkmk_test.conf'

Woran liegt das? bzw. ist das ein Bug? @robin.gierse

seems like maybe Fix local privilege escalation from site users is not a compatible change in all cases?

The files located here /omd/apache are readable only by root and the group. The site user cannot access them. But I don’t know if this is a general bug or if it could be because of our umask (0027)?!
Is it enough to just give the files o+r or is there more to change?

after chmod o+r to the related file, the update procedure was successful.

After update do 2.1.0p8 there is error when clicking Check_MK Discovery → Parametar for this servise

I can confirm the error. It occurs when I click on “Parameters for this Service” for the “Check_MK” service of e.g. a linux host.

Could all of you facing this “parameter of the service” error execute “omd update-apache-config [SITENAME]” like mentioned in Fix local privilege escalation from site users please. In my case error has been “fixed” by this.

Devs are informed to make the werk incompatible…

Hi @MarsellusWallace,

[root@cmk1 apache]# omd update-apache-config daily
Reloading Apache...OK
[root@cmk1 apache]# omd update-apache-config daily_slave1
Reloading Apache...OK

Then I’ve restartet every site and also the systems httpd. But I’ve still the error message:

Kind regards

Here is my Crash Report as Screenshots:

Hi, the issue with “Parameters for this service has been fixed”: https://checkmk.com/werk/14546
The fix will be released with the next patch release.


Das sieht aus, als wäre da eine Datei abgelegt, die nicht zu Checkmk gehört. Kann das sein?
Ansonsten gab es schon die richtigen Hinweise, würde ich sagen.

Hi @robin.gierse ,
this issue was already solved by myself and there is a werk which adresses this:

Thank you!
