I'm having trouble configuring an active zabbix agent in 2.0. If I set DisablePassive=1 then it stops listening, but the master zabbix server just reports the node as not responding.

How exactly should I configure a node to do active checks only?

The agent was setup correctly but the Items configured for the host need to be changed. The Type must be changed from "Agent" to "Agent Active" on all the items in the used templates. Once this change was made then it started working.
