I've set up a master icinga2 node that controls checks against other hosts and services that are available externally. In order to get more in depth stats and checks on other remote systems, such as disk space, swap, etc. I've installed icinga2 and have run the wizard so that the remote machine is acting as a client.
Now what I am seeing is that this remote machine has it's own configurations and variables set for checking disk space usage, etc. If I want to set the following variables:
...for this host, I have to login to the remote host, edit the configuration files, reload icinga2 and be done with it.
I guess what I am hoping is that I could change these variables on the master node and have it synchronize these variables (or the config?) to the remote client node. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be working. I have tried running ```icinga2 node update-config``` but this does not seem to make any changes to the checks taking place or add the custom variables I have configured this host/zone/node for.
How is icinga2 synchronizing configurations or checks? Do I *have* to log into this remote client to make these changes or can this _at all_ be changed from *only* the master node? I searched around the documentation but I cannot seem to locate this information ; examples are not given anywhere, either, so I am at a loss.
