I'm a second year college student in New Hampshire and an real novice to the world of Nagios. I'm doing a project to run a Nagios simulation on my computer. I am using VMWorkstation to run 3 virtual Ubuntu machines, one as the Nagios host and the other two as clients. I configured them all using the template provided and just changed a few fields, IP address, host name,ect and was able to see them all on the web console. I was going to run a few tests to see if I could get one computer to return warnings so I ran a script to run sleep 250 times so that the process service would return a warning but it returned a warning on all 3 machines not just the localhost I ran it on. I wasn't sure if this was a problem because it was running on VMWare or because of something I configured, or perhaps something with using the templates.
Anybody have any advice or ideas asto what it might be? Thanks!
