    Re: Installing Nagios... what do you want to know?

    I am planning to do a complete clean install on VM so I will let you know by the end of the week how things go.

    At first glance looks ok but if I look at it from a *nix noobs perspective whats has not been covered is getting the required files onto the nix box in the first place, I think there should be a requirement for PUTTY and WinSCP so those working in an M$ environment will be able to admin and file transfer the box easily.

    Re: Installing Nagios... what do you want to know?

    I have read your document with great interest and plan to go ahead with this over the next couple of weeks.

    One thing however you have written this guide refering to Debian Etch so I went to download the image and was assounded by the amount of choice although I did notice debian-40r0-i386-netinst.iso is this the iso that you use? if not could you point me and maybe others to the download link for the project. I am using an intel based PC for this.

    Thanks

    Just get CD 1 if you cant find the netinst.

    Re: Installing Nagios... what do you want to know?

    ohhh

    So I follow guide on linux box that CactiEz setup on...

    Great download files unpackage..

    Next step create user "User already exists"....

    Hold here looks bit closer find EzCacti has it installed as default...

    So skips lot of config files and gets on with monitoring service bit.

    Re: Installing Nagios... what do you want to know?

    ^^^ Another revision uploaded with Windows checks and a little bit of clarification on a couple of matters

    Let me know about any problems... once these are ironed out I'll stick it on the wiki and others can add hints and tips.

    You might want to mention about installing NTP/keeping the clock in sync. Kinda pointless looking at logs when the times are wrong.

    do these config examples work with versoin 3.0? IVe got as far as getting it working with apache, cgis seem to work, just need to set up the monitoring now.

    Going to be monitoring:

    • 2x linux servers
    • 1x win2008 servers
    • 4x wireless access points (netgear unmanaged, if possible)
    • 2x netgear media players (by ping only maybe?)
    • 1x xerox network printer
    • 1x netgear wireless print server (unmanaged, if possible)

    ok sorry for dredging up an old thread, but the wiki is a bit out of date now, bad links etc so once Ive got this working ill update it.

    I keep getting a user denied when trying to access the cgi's, unless i disable the auth in cgi.cfg

    Ive set my apache up a little bit different, as I run multiple vhosts, and as such have just made .htpasswd and .htaccess files rather than the access being contained in the conf. (ive also tried in the vhost conf but didnt work at all)

    What username should I be using for the htaccess?

    Have you done the section about
    Code:
    httpaswd
    I think that is the command. The user name in the instructions is nagiosadmin.

    ah thats the ticket, I was using a username of nagios. Sorted.

    Now I just need to figure out how to get it monitoring 2008 server and xp clients
