Opsview Monitor 4.6.3 introduced the capability of a more secure method of
communication between the Opsview Agent and its Unix clients. This involves the addition of two new host variables:
and NRPE_CERTIFICATES. These variables won't appear automatically on an
upgraded system (they will on a new installation of Opsview Monitor), so, in
order to use this new feature of the Opsview Agent, they'll have to be
added manually by following the steps below. It is, however, not
