Hi there,

first of all, please be so kind and start a new thread with your subject 
instead of replying and only changing the subject line. The thread id 
will be a new one and the tree sorting will get more readable.

Yep, that's true... thanks for the reply so we need to upgrade icinga 
requirements then.
In your case ... if you cannot upgrade your Mysql server you can modify 
the mysql.sql to varchar(255), it will remain useless as dbhandler 
should send the whole long output as Mysql will truncate the value... 
@Hendrik, please correct me in this case if i am wrong.

Kind regards,
