Re: Hide passwords in services

The text still needs to end up on the disk somehow, so it would still be plaintext. Anything you define in resources.cfg won't be displayed in the web interface, but nothing can really be done about it being plaintext on the disk, unless you're able to write checkcommands that would use a hashed/enc...

Re: Hide passwords in services

Just to be clear, is your requirement:

1) Do not write plain-text passwords to files

or

2) Do not write plain-text passwords to anything that can show up in the Nagios or NConf web interfaces?

Re: Hide passwords in services

Put them in resources.cfg, and then just use the macro in the service definitions. :)

Re: SCP Deployment: missing ssh option leads 2 failed deploy

Another option is to *not* require a TTY for the user that's trying to apply the config: Defaults:nagios !requiretty (or whatever user you're using) I have found messing with the TTY settings trying to get them all correct frustrating, and can live with the very minimal risk of not requiring a TTY f...

Re: "No SSH check was found" warnings upon config generation

NConf doesn't do any checking, but if you have a distributed setup with collectors and a central monitor server, it will automatically generate the config in a way so that the monitor does active SSH checks on the collector servers to dermine if they're still there. Yes, this is exactly what was go...

Re: Hosts sometimes shows all entries sometimes not

I hope you've been able to solve this, but if you haven't - go kill that second instance of Nagios that's running. :)

Re: Distributed monitoring and multiple parent hosts. Bug?

Ahhhhh... So this really *isn't* a problem, it's just a matter of letting the collector take care of that. I saw that option and pondered it, but I was still hung up on the fact that the parents I thought should be in the monitor's configuration weren't.

Thanks a bunch!

Re: Distributed monitoring and multiple parent hosts. Bug?

So no one views this as a problem? I guess if I have a distributed environment, and hosts with more than one parent, I would expect each monitor to include all required parents, so the Nagios configuration isn't modified like this. This is NConf *changing my configuration*. Or am I misdiagnosing thi...

Re: Update Nconf for 1.2.5 to 1.3.0

It's happening because the sanity check is failing. Until that completes successfully, you'll get no output. max_check_attempts is a required directive for hosts and services, IIRC. Have you been messing around with the attributes or anything? I believe it should be part of the generic host template.

Re: Update Nconf for 1.2.5 to 1.3.0

Do you *have* a max_check_attempts value defined for that host? Is it defined in the host template?

I see errors like this when I have a mental blip and forget to assign a template to a host or service.

Re: Update Nconf for 1.2.5 to 1.3.0

What do you get when you issue the following command on the NConf server:

Code: Select all

ls -al /var/www/html/nconf/temp/test/Default_collector.cfg
?

Distributed monitoring and multiple parent hosts. Bug?

Hey folks, I'm architecting a distributed monitoring system, using NConf on a central Nagios server to aggregate the check results and to manage the configuration for all monitor hosts. However, I ran into a problem today - I have many remote offices, and all of them have two parents (they're multih...

Hey folks, I'm re-architecting my Nagios systems, and am working on a new central monitor that will: 1) aggregate all the Nagios collector results 2) manage the configurations for all Nagios servers I'm fumbling along OK, but I notice something a bit odd when I generate the config: Generate config l...

Re: options shown grayed

IIRC, 1.3.0 removed the abilities to edit certain attributes of host/services. This has been discussed on the forum before, you might search a little and see if you can find it.

The long and short of it, is that the ones you see greyed-out are not editable.
