Today I tried to acknowledge a problem for the first time (we usually just let them stay unacknowledged until solved) and faced an annoying situation. I’m guessing I’ve just done something wrong, but my skills with google failed to come up with an answer to my question.
The host that went down has 10 or so monitored services, when the host went down naturally all services on it went as well. I logged in to Nagios and acknowledged the host, but that did’nt acknowledge the services. I looked for a link similar to ‘acknowledge all services on host’ but failed to locate such a link.
Eventually I ended up acknowledging all services by hand, and that really annoyed me. What did I do wrong?
