Remove timeperiod exclusions in the UI. This function don’t work very fine whether with Centreon Engine 1.x or Nagios. We prefer removing the function in order to avoid problems.
ACL of pages is not fully updated during the upgrade process. So please check all your ACL pages after the migration. You may have problems with the followings pages:
Monitoring > Hosts
Monitoring > Services
Monitoring > Performances (new page)
Monitoring > Downtimes
Monitoring > Comments
Monitoring > Eventlogs > System logs
Graph slip not working
Pagination is broker when you go on the last page, change the number of line to the Max. Page become empty.
If you have timeperiods used in exception or inclusion of timeperiod and now deleted, their ids stays in the database in relation table. During the sql update process, this blocks an addition of constraint on this relation table. To fix it, you have to remove old timeperiod id.:
mysql> DELETE FROM timeperiod_exclude_relations WHERE timeperiod_id NOT IN (SELECT tp_id FROM timeperiod) OR timeperiod_exclude_id NOT IN (SELECT tp_id FROM timeperiod); mysql> DELETE FROM timeperiod_include_relations WHERE timeperiod_id NOT IN (SELECT tp_id FROM timeperiod) OR timeperiod_exclude_id NOT IN (SELECT tp_id FROM timeperiod);
