I have an existing Nagios 2.x setup that’s fairly complex and working well. Among other things it has both host & service escalations defined for both paging and sending e-mail. Most of our hosts are in a hostgroup that sends out pager notifications.
I just added a new service check that we want to send notifications by e-mail only. The host that the service check is on is in the hostgroup for paging. I really don’t want to have to pull the host from that hostgroup and add individual services to the paging service group since there are a good number of services being checked on this host.
What is the easiest way to have a host use one notification method for all services except for one and a different notification method for the other service?
