Nagios Ver & OS Ver: Running Nagios 3.0.2 on OpenSUSE 10.3
Problem: I am in the process of implementing Nagios for the first time. I installed Nagios and successfully started it after following the Quick Startup Guide for OpenSUSE. I then shutdown Nagios and modified the nagios.cfg file by commenting in [activating] the windows.cfg configuration line. I restarted Nagios, but it failed to start.
I then restarted Nagios using the verification -v switch, which reported an “Undefined Variable” error on the following nagios.cfg file line (the line defining the temp_path):
[blockquote]# TEMP PATH
This is path where Nagios can create temp files for service and
host check results, etc.
The permissions for the *tmp *directory are as follows:
[blockquote]drwxrwxr-x 2 nagios nagios tmp[/blockquote]
I have tried moving the *tmp *directory back to its default location to /tmp to see if that made a difference — it did not — still get the same error.
I then commented out this *tmp *line of code and reran the nagios -v verification tool. This time I received the same error [Undefined Variable], but for a different line of code called:
Does anyone have any idea what’s going on? Could I possibly have a corrupt nagios.cfg file? Should I just upgrade to the newer version of Nagios that was just released?
Thanks in advance for your help!
