When I started to use Check_MK I read a lot of the documentation on the site. It is very good but in some cases it was quite complicated and I just wanted a tutorial how to do some things. This tutorial shows you how to upgrade OMD to the latest version and also how to install mkp files. This might be handy if you want to use plug-ins for monitoring something that is not built in. For example Synology or Domino.
First check your version. I have used Ubuntu server so I type
Also check if its 32 bit or 64 bit bt typing
After this choose you correct download location. I have used a nightly build.
Upgrade Check MK and OMD
sudo wget http://files.omdistro.org/nightly/2014-08-29/omd-1.21.20140829.trusty.i386.deb (change this url) sudo gdebi omd-0.44_lucid1_amd64.deb sudo su - mysite omd versions omd stop omd update mysite omd start
Now it will be upgraded!
Install Plugins / Mkp files from Check_MK exchange
sudo su mysite check_mk -P list (lists current packages) cd / cd home/wherever your files are check_mk -P install newpackage*
Check_MK will automatically use the mkp packages.
