When upgrading from 1.9.3 to 1.10.1, nrpe does not stay in the "default" set of services to start
Tonight I upgraded one of our Alpine Linux boxes which runs several services including mail relaying and web proxying. We use the nrpe daemon to monitor the box via our central nagios server. The server has been setup to run from disk, and was running 1.9.3 with the latest updates from the 1.9 Main repo. We upgraded to 1.10.1 by switching to the Main 1.10 repo and running apk upgrade. The update went without any issues and we rebooted the server. After the reboot, the nrpe service failed to start. I checked the “default” boot services and nrpe had been removed. I added it back manually, which isn’t a big issue, but any ideas why it didn’t stick around.
Only other detail that may or may not be important is that nrpe had been originally installed from the edge repo, which isn’t in our /etc/apk/repositories anymore.
