Is anybody use monarch for the configuration of nagios?I got


#1

I have nagios 2x installed and try to use monarch-0.95d to simplify the configuration of nagios.And there are some problems.I use the minimal.cfg as cfg_file and load config files in monarch,there seems to be some errors and when load for the second times everything is ok.Then a just run a Pre Flight Test in monarch then problems happened as listed.Even though I add hosts,services…other problems errors.Why should this happen as minimal.cfg is an correct config file which runs well in my server?
anyone help me!

Check your configuration file(s) to ensure that they contain valid
directives and data defintions. If you are upgrading from a previous
version of Nagios, you should be aware that some variables/definitions
may have been removed or modified in this version. Make sure to read
the HTML documentation regarding the config files, as well as the
’Whats New’ section to find out what has changed.

Sorry I can’t help but I’d like to know what Monarch is, and how it helps with config files. (If it is nice I’ll use it and help you after :wink:
