Service Escalation Error


just built a new 3.0 box and so far love it… But have hit a snag when attempting to define service escalations.

running a check resulted in:

Error: Could not find a service matching host name ‘server’ and description ‘NT_CPU’ (config file ‘/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/escalations.cfg’, starting on line 1)
Error: Could not expand services specified in service escalation (config file ‘/usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/escalations.cfg’, starting on line 1)

escalations.cfg contains

define serviceescalation{
host_name server
service_description NT_CPU
first_notification 3
last_notification 0
contact_groups admins
notification_interval 10

Ideas? Suggestions?


found a fix… changed the service_description to *
