Icinga X.509 Module

We are pleased to announce the first open source release of our X.509 module for Icinga.

The X.509 module for Icinga keeps track of certificates as they are deployed in a network environment.
It does this by scanning networks for TLS services and collects whatever certificates it finds along the way.
The certificates are verified using its own trust store. read more…

Icinga 2.10.2 bugfix release

With the TLS connection improvements there was also another bug with hanging TLS connections unveiled. Turns out, this has been sitting there since 2.8.2 and not only affects JSON-RPC cluster connections but also HTTP request sessions, as being used inside the Director kickstart wizard for example. Tom is working on a fix for Director 1.6 in order to support older Icinga 2 versions too.

2.10.2 also fixes a programming mistake with the minimum version parameter for the “icinga” check, thanks for the patch, Max! The path constant changes in 2.10 introduced a regression with the cache file for icinga2 object list being overridden with the legacy 1.x objects cache content. You’re safe when you have disabled the statusdata feature before 2.10.2. SELinux would throw an error with package related changes, this has been fixed too. The documentation has been updated for removed/updated packages too.

Icinga Vagrant Boxes 2.0: OpenStack provider and enhanced scenarios

It’s been a while since the last Vagrant box update and release, so here are the highlights of the past months combined into a new shiny 2.0 release :)

 

New provider: OpenStack

In the past week I’ve been playing with OpenStack. Johan was so kind to send a PR nearly 2 years ago, now the NETWAYS NWS cloud is ready for OpenStack and my tests. Small things were needed to adopt the box provisioning with floating IPs. If you are an experienced OpenStack user, you’ll know how to source everything into your environment. Everyone else just can follow the newly written docs :)

Huge shout-out to Johan from CSC for his contribution!
