[collectd] new datasources stats not accepted (?)

I'm a bit confused about what exactly the issue hence the subject ...
I have collectd 5.1.0-3 on both clients and server. The server writes
I have 12 servers sending data in to collectd and it is getting stored
in whisper files via carbon.
I started up 15 servers and these new ones aren't showing up in carbon
(no whisper files get created)
To remove non collectd parts from the problem I turned on rrd. rrd
files are created for the 12 old servers but not the 15 new ones.
Since I use puppet to deploy the servers I'm pretty confident than the
configs are the same. I've manually confirmed that the collectd version,
kernel etc are the same.
I know the data makes it to the collectd server - `tcpdump -i eth1 -p -n
-s 1500 udp port 25826` shows packets from _all_ the servers.
However when I did an strace:
`strace -f -p 26470 2>&1| grep recvfrom`
I see the hostnames of all the good sources go by, but not the bad
ones. I have syslog logging enabled but I don't see any errors there.
More information about the collectd
