    Dear Pradeep,

    Kindly give your input on this,
    It will help me a lot, I’m facing some issue.
    My check_mk plugin is not updating inventory from nagios server.
    Both (Nagios and check_mk) servers have on same host.

    Your response will highly appreciate.

    Hi Pradeep,

    Is it necessary to have xinetd installed on the server to be monitored. It seems installing the agent rpm does not include xinetd.

    I have seen in some blogs that xinetd is necessary for Check_MK to work properly.

    Please share your thoughts. Thanks in advance.

      you don’t need xinetd, it works fine with systemd. if you have a new version of centos/redhat it will install with systemctl automatically, xinetd is disabled. if you have a older version the next two commands should work just fine.

      #systemctl enable check_mk.socket
      #systemctl start check_mk.socket

      Use “Reschedule Check_MK service” for both services OR restart the agent on the system where is it installed and run the command check_mk_agent and see the output of it and after this test it in WATO on the properties for the system is a an option Save & Test and in the agent window you should see the output from the agent
