Hi list & people
i just wanted to give feedback on the citrix_farm.ps1 Plugin.
Unlike described in the plugin catalogue  (
https://mathias-kettner.de/checkmk_check_catalogue.html), the agent must
not run with Citrix admin rights but with local admin rights in order to
get the citrix data. So this is  a bit misleading. Also perhaps a hint is
missing that piggyback has to work correctly in order to have the citrix
metrics appearing on the workers then ;-)
Second is that the part "VMTools State" seems to always report "Warn", no
matter what real state the Vmware tools have, even if they are current (and
thus even the "ESX Guest tools status" says OK) . So i commented out the
according lines in the script (which are 136 and 137).
i am not a programmer, perhaps someone can investigate on this.
I hadt this exact issues on 1 installations which is 1.2.6p16 and could
reproduce it on a 1.2.8.p5 install (all CRE)
Have a nice day everyone :-)
