Ip address change not reflected


I changed the ip address on a couple of servers in the minimal.cfg. These show up correctly on the map. But in the reports such as availability report they still show up with the old ip address and show down. I cannot find where I need to make a change so that the reports reflect the new address. Any help?



A host is not checked unless it’s state changes. Force a state change by using the “submit passive service check” for a service for all hosts that are in the down state.

You also must restart nagios in order to read the new config files. Thus, the old ip’s.


The passive check was what I needed. I had restarted already so IP was correct on the map just not the reports. Passive check fixed it.
