AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'DefaultNewRegistrationCallback'

/var/log/cb/enterprise/enterprise.log:

Error parsing /etc/cb/cb.conf line 760 (default_new_sensor_registration_callback.py): need more than 1 value to unpack

Cause

One of the parameters was added to the configuration file /etc/cb/cb.conf is incorrect:

NewRegistrationCallbackModulePath=/usr/share/cb/plugins/default_new_sensor_registratio

Or:

NewRegistrationCallbackModulePath=/usr/share/cb/plugins/

default_new_sensor_registration_callback.py

Solution

  1. On the Cb Response server, edit the /etc/cb/cb.conf file and enter the correct value:

    NewRegistrationCallbackModulePath=/usr/share/cb/plugins/default_new_sensor_registration.py

  2. Restart services:

    service cb-enterprise restart
