What am I doing wrong here ? Email is working fine but sms is not (although it’s an email basically)


#3

do you see anything being written in the log for the houssamn contact when you expect to get the notification?
One thought, try changing the “post hours” time period to “post_hours” - maybe that space is causing some sort of trouble.

Thanks a lot

i’ve added the _ to the period, where can i see the log you’re talking about ?


#5

…nagios/var/nagios.log

you should see something like

nagios-08-10-2008-00.log:[1218242376] SERVICE NOTIFICATION: …etc

Thanks a lot , I don’t see any errors in the logfile . however it seems the space is the problem , i will monitor it today and see , thanks again.
