I have an odd problem with Nagios notification via jabber. I have the jabber notification script (perl based) working fine from the command line. I’ve checked permissions and the notification command from within nagios config a half dozen times, both ARE correct. No errors are generated either, I just don’t get the notification. I’ve created a bash wrapper script that calls the jabber script in the same directory with the same permissions… replacing the one command in the nagios notification string with the name of the wrapper… and it WORKS! WTF? This shouldn’t work like this. Any ideas of what it might be.
You must disable/enable service notifications by using the web interface. To understand why, read the url below.
