Problem viewing host groups in cgi


#1

Hi,

I’m using Nagios v.3.0.3

I have a few Host Groups with a few servers in each.
I have a few Contact Groups and a few contacts in each.

I have a request from one of the Contact Groups to be able to see a Host defined in a different Host Group. I added to the contact_groups variable (with a comma separator) the additional Contact Group name.

I reloaded the Nagios configuration files and was unable to view the new Host or Host Group in the CGI page.

Seems that the only way I could add the Host Group to that Contact Group’s CGI pages, was to add their Contact Group name to ALL the hosts defined in the Host Group.

Is this a bug or a feature? Maybe I’m doing someone wrong?

Please assist.
