Details

    • Problem report
    • Status: Closed
    • Trivial
    • Resolution: Cannot Reproduce
    • 5.4.4
    • None
    • Agent2 plugin (N)
    • None
    • Zabbix server 5.4.4
      Zabbix proxy 5.4.4
      Zabbix agent 2 5.4.4 (Windows x64)

    Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Install and start agent 2 on a Windows server with line `HostMetadataItem=system.uname` in the agent configuration file.
      2. Create an autoregistration rule with the following:
        Condition: Host metadata contains Windows
        Operation: Link to templates: Windows by Zabbix agent active

      Result:
      The host will register with the server but all items using performance counters will not collect data. In the agent logs the following message shows up multiple times:

      2021/09/23 07:05:23.360574 plugin 'WindowsPerfMon' collector failed: The handle is not a valid PDH object.

      Expected:
      I was able to get the items to start collecting data by restarting the agents on the hosts. I think the expected behavior should be that the items begin collecting data without requiring a restart of the agent on the monitored machines.
