I am running Icinga 2 and only have 1 windows agent (the rest are Linux based). My one windows agent has been working fine on a Windows 2012 server. However, after some recent Windows security updates the service fails to start with the error:
The Icinga 2 service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.
I have tried re-configuring Icinga and even tried fully uninstalling and reinstalling it, however I still get the same error. I checked the event logs and the error that I get there is:
critical/cli: Failed to restore state file: Error: Invalid NetString (missing : )
Has anyone else encountered or is experiencing this? Please keep in mind that the Icinga agent was working just fine up until a couple of days ago.
