I’ve been slow to upgrade to 2.11 because I’m the nervous type, but its on the horizon. I was actually consulting https://icinga.com/docs/icinga2/latest/doc/06-distributed-monitoring/#three-levels-with-masters-satellites-and-agents while helping someone on this forum, and I noticed something that doesn’t line up with my own config that I didn’t see when double checking the 2.10.5 documentation on git:
master2 and satellite2 should not have a host address defined for their sibling nodes per this document. For close to two years now, I’ve been operating in a setup where satellite1 has the host address of satellite2 in zones.conf and vice versa. Is this new practice, or have I been running on bad practice this entire time? I had at this point thought they both needed to connect to each other to coordinate to avoid duplicate checks. I consider I’ve been wrong all this time and need to adjust, just trying to get an idea of if I should do it now or when I upgrade. Fortunately it hasn’t been a problem.
