I have an annoying problem - not all the time, but mostly after I have reconfigured icinga2. This is what happens:
I have a number of passive service checks - they all work well, and I see updates on the web pages. Then I make a change, eg. I create or rename a service group, and restart the master server, and all the passive checks disappear (this is not the problem, although it is a bit unnerving) - they normally come back again after next update, because the passive checks create them again. However, quite often they don’t show up on the web page.
I can see in
icinga2 console --connect 'https://some:firstname.lastname@example.org:5665/' that the service objects exist and look normal - they just don’t show up. Is there any way to force the issue? Or figure out what is wrong?
I ran the master and the satelite zones with debug, and I saw that they both made references to a service I have renamed - ie, there were lines like this in the debug logs:
[2019-03-08 11:44:21 +0000] notice/ConfigCompiler: Compiling config file: /var/lib/icinga2/api/packages/_api/cx1-admin-1521551477-1/conf.d/services/cx1-136-5-2.cx1.hpc.ic.ac.uk!check_xfs.conf
I cleared all of them out, and that seems to have made a difference.
