My employer has asked me to investigate and plan how to upgrade our Nagios 1.4.1 install to 2.10. I’m pretty much a Nagios (and Uni:evil: neophyte, so detailed answers/explanations are truly appreciated. (meaning = I’ve done one install of Nagios 2.10 on a Ubuntu box at home, and even that I needed help with)
1.) Where can I find a document that will show/compare the differences between 1.x and 2.x ?? ( preferably in an easy to read side-by-side layout??)
2.) barring the above, any forum threads or advice on what the biggest “gotcha’s” are upgrading 1.x to 2.x ??
We have a lot of custom configs and tweaks to our existing 1.4.1 install of Nagios,… so my plan at the moment is to NOT upgrade the 1.4.1 box, but instead to build a new (seperate) box with Nagios 2.10 and slowly port over our configs (cleaning them as I go) so that our new box is more “standard” and not so messy.
Does that sound like a reasonable plan?.. or is there a better one ?
