Quick Nagios Problem
Checking my config file and i'm getting the following two errors...
Error: Service notification command 'notify-by-email' specified for contact 'nagios' is not defined anywhere!
Error: Host notification command 'host-notify-by-email' specified for contact 'nagios' is not defined anywhere!
where do i specify these options as i can't see anything in the documentation.....
Edit the /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/contacts.cfg config file with your favorite editor and change the email address associated with the nagiosadmin contact definition to the address you'd like to use for receiving alerts.

Reading configuration data...
Error: Invalid command object directive 'Address:'.
Error: Could not add object property in file '/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/commands.cfg' on line 38.
***> One or more problems was encountered while processing the config files...
Check your configuration file(s) to ensure that they contain valid
directives and data defintions. If you are upgrading from a previous
version of Nagios, you should be aware that some variables/definitions
may have been removed or modified in this version. Make sure to read
the HTML documentation regarding the config files, as well as the
'Whats New' section to find out what has changed.
What is on line 38 of that file?
I'm using nagios 2.6. You are using nagios 3.01. I suspect the command definitions differ.
Think i've solved the problem .... was a classic case of PEBKAC .... :D
