Type: Documentation task
Affects Version/s: 4.2.5
Fix Version/s: 4.4 (plan)
Environment:Zabbix server 4.2.5
Zabbix proxy 3.2.x
Sprint:Sprint 55 (Aug 2019)
In the documentation of version 4.2 there is still a statement:
Server supports partial backwards compatibility by accepting old host availability, history data, discovery data and auto registration requests.
But in reality, it seems that the code was removed. In 4.0 there is still code in src/zabbix_server/trapper/trapper.c
In version 4.2 it is no longer there
The incorrect statement should be removed from documentation.
As a result, if there is an outdated proxy connecting to Zabbix server, there is a very undescriptive error written in the log:
every time that proxy tries to connect to the server.
I will create an additional ZBX about this.
