NSClient++ Detected crash - Service not started, not restarting


If I install the Icinga2-Agent using the PowerShell module, I receive this error:

Notice: Trying to remove NSClient++ service
WARNUNG: Warten auf Beendigung des Diensts “NSClient++ (x64) (nscp)”…

I’ve two questions:

  1. Is this a known problem?
  2. The current version of NSClient++ is (Jan 2018) while Icinga 2.10.5 ships (Apr 2016). Is this on purpose?

PS: Since I upgraded it manually to, I do not get new crash-dumps like before.
Tested on Windows 10 (1903).


we only bundle fully tested versions, and for a very long time there was no stable 0.5.2.x tree. The new API isn’t available either, so a version bump was on low priority. It will be included in 2.11 since other users asked as well. https://github.com/Icinga/icinga2/issues?utf8=✓&q=is%3Aclosed+milestone%3A2.11.0+nsclient
