I have been using Nagios 2.x for almost 2 years now and I have been very happy with its performance. Recently I decided to upgrade to version 3 but when I did Nagios stopped sending out notifications. I figured that I had some bugs in my configuration so I rebuilt the whole thing one object at a time using the Nagios 3 documentation. When I had completed that Nagios still did not send out down notices and I don’t know what to do other than revert back to version 2.
When I go to the Host detail page for a server it says that notifications are enabled. I know my email command works because I can send custom notifications just fine. The system correctly displays a server going down and then up (nagios.log records this as well) but no notifications are sent. I have doublechecked both my contact and host objects and I can’t find anything wrong. Notifications are enabled in nagios.cfg. Is there anywhere else I should be looking? Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Here is my contact object:
And here is the host object (slightly edited):
Naturally the contact I provided is in the ‘office_group’ contact_group.
Thanks in advance.
