I've just run into this problem myself, after installing MRTG 2.9.12a on RH
7.1, using RRDtool 1.0.33.
I previously had run 5 seperate instances of MRTG for the 5 regions of my
network. Well, I decided to script a daemon and point it at a single config
file that would include the original 5 configs.
Now all of my rrds end up in the same directory, the last region, due to the
problem mentioned below.
Any ideas on how to get around this?
