[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#853863: [nagios-plugins-contrib] check_raid makes fallback to UNKNOWN after upgrade

Package: nagios-plugins-contrib
Version: 20.20170118~bpo8+1
Severity: normal

With the latest update the check_raid plugin changes the default enabled plugins and adds "dm".
This leads to Nagios/Icinga2 reporting state "UNKNOWN" for previously "GREEN" services.

As this changes the expected behavior there should be at least a reminder for users during upgrade.

# sudo -u nagios ./check_raid -l
2 active plugins

# sudo -u nagios ./check_raid   
UNKNOWN: dm:[No devices to check]; mdstat:[md0(119.18 GiB raid1):UU, md1(5.46 TiB raid6):UUUUU]

Work around the restore the old behavior:

Change service templates to only use the mdstat plugin per default --> check_raid -p mdstat
