I'm hoping that this is a valid answer? I'm coming from a Big Brother environment, which took a lot of time and patience to learn, configure, etc. We were hoping for a different experience with Nagios, and it seemed pretty simple to get the server up and running. Trying to learn what Nagios support options was somewhat painful, but I finally found the "unofficial forum" here, and the mailing lists. I guess it's similar to Big Brother's archived mailing list for their Better Than Free option. I'm really not looking forward to spending another 6 months learning all the ins and outs of every aspect of Nagios in the same way. If so, I should just have stuck with BB.
So that being said, the first thing I try doing is getting the NSClient++ running on W2K3 boxes, and getting the systray to work. Straight out of the documentation it doesn't work, and I see a post somewhere that mentioned running NSClient++ SysTray install, which seemed to work with the following error:
nsclient++ SysTray install
NSClient++.cpp(533) Attempting to start NSCLient++ - 0.3.7.493 2009-10-12 e \SysTray.cpp(51) SysTray is not installed (or it cannot interact with the desktop) SysTray won't be loaded. Run NSClient++ SysTray install to change this. SystemTray is no able to run as the SERVICE_INTERACTIVE_PROCESS flag has been set. NSClient++.cpp(1281) Failed to set settings fileNo settings manager found have you configured.
This was after first running nsclient++ /install of course. It's telling me to do something, that I AM doing. I'm not able to find anything regarding the error about the fileNo settings, nothing. If it just doesn't work on 2K3, it should be easier to confirm with a Google search, but nada... I'm just getting started, and the forum searching has begun...
