Description

It seems not to be possible to setup Zabbix Agent 6.0 on pfSense 2.6 to talk to a HA Zabbix Server Installation.

Zabbix 6.0 added Support for native HA (https://www.zabbix.com/whats_new_6_0#ha_cluster) with 2 or more Nodes. In our case we‘re running a 2 Node Cluster for Zabbix Server which would have to be given in the Format „zabbix-1.example.com;zabbix-2.example.com“ as „Server“ in Agent Config. When putting this into Config an Error is shown even though the Config would be perfectly valid.

As per the current situation it‘s only possible to add the currently active Zabbix Server Node as „Server“ which isn‘t really helpful as in case the Server runs a failover Config needs to be adjusted manually.

It‘d be great to have this Option to enable HA on the agent.

The "Correct Place" in Zabbix Agent 6.0 to configure would be "ServerActive" (https://github.com/zabbix/zabbix/blob/master/conf/zabbix_agentd.conf#L142-L158), but it comes up with the exact same error message when trying to put in HA Cluster Configuration.
