Check_mk Inventory not updating Solved

If you are just installing the check_mk inventory plugin, please understand the the plugin only run between a set interval times. This is because the inventory process is places a high load on the server and repeating it would impact the performance of the server. The default interval is 4 hours.
You can force an inventory check by doing the following
  1. Find and delete the mk_inventory.last.* file. This is the file that stores the last time the inventory process was run
  2. Go to the check_mk web interface and trigger / refresh the Check_MK HW/SW Inventory service.

Observe the Output of the check plugin entry in the service detail table for Check_MK HW/SW Inventory service. It should read a lot of entries.
