    Works well with CMK 2.1p14

    But the fact that it replaces the CheckMK agent makes it useless in my opinion. The plugin cannot replace the agent completely. It is possible to specify in CheckMK that API and CheckMK Agent should be used. But since the iDrac IP address is different from the one for the CheckMK agent, you can't use both together, unfortunately.
    There should be an option in WATO that allows to set the iDrac IP address/hostname or macro e.g. to use the second host address.
