Nagios notifications problem (custom notifications work, oth



I was looking for info regarding the following Nagios configuration problem:
Nagios can send me notifications (via sendmail) when I choose the option “send custom service notification”.
But when the service is down Nagios don’t send me notifications regarding it.

I was wondering where’s the location in the configuration files I should look regarding this scenario? What should I define? Why there’s a difference between sending it using the custom option and the passive one?



ok, its working right now.

  1. make sure that your email address is declared in nagios.cfg file
    instead of the defaults (administrator email/pager address):
    admin_email = nagios@localhost
    admin_pager = pagenagios@localhost
    change it to your mail address

  2. make sure that enable_notification=1 is enabled.
