Odd config behavior in Distributed Nagios



We are currently running nagios 2.9 in a distributed nagios configuration; We are trying to edit our contact groups with new contacts etc.

The problem is this: when we update the files, in templates.cfg for the master server it appears to propagate correctly (we have even gone so far as to change the contact group name to make sure), the web front end shows our changes but when a service goes down the notifications are still showing the old configuration; even after recycling the nagios service and the system itself. We are basically at a loss as to how its still retaining values to Do Not Exist anymore. Any help would be greatly appreciated!



Try deleting
/usr/local/nagios/var/objects.cache and
stop then start nagios. Never use RESTART, unless of course, they have finally fixed it.
