Did you have a working setup with Hobbit 4.2.0, with clients that sent data correctly? Are you using the same IP or DNS name on the new server as configured in the clients?

Subject: [hobbit] Can´t receive client data


i installed a new server with sles11 and Xymon 4.2.3. I must move our 
old server with the Hobbit Monitor 4.2.0 to the new machine.I reuse the 
most of the configuration files from the Hobbit Monitor 4.2.0 to 
configure Xymon.

My biggest problem ist, that xymon can´t recieve any data from my hobbit 
clients on the other machines. So i can only see the conn-, info- and 
trends Information.The other way around i recieve all data from my 
server (Xymon Server) over the xymon client. So i can check cpu-, disk 
status and so on. Must i install on all my machines a xymon client to 
recieve data ? That would be devastating.

I´m a amateur in Xymon and need help, because i can´t find a answer for 
my problem.

Kind regards
