Upgrade to 2.0 from 1.2?


#1

Where can I find instructions for upgrading/converting nagios 1.2 to 2.0?

I see a lot of references to oss.op5.se/nagios for downloading some php scripts to help in cfg file conversion but that website isn’t available. Anyone have an alternate download location for those?

not much to do… but two main points to keep in mind:
Nagios 2 is still BETA.
Nagios 2 doesn’t support MySQL anymore so check that you have all your configs in cfg files…

Only problem i had while going from 1.2 to 2.0 was that some directive wasn’t present in the hosts file… i had to add one info to each service which previously was by host… (possibly the contact group)

PS: keep a backup of nagios 1.2 at least until you have 2 running fine if you don’t want Mr. Murphy to hit you hard. :slight_smile:

EDIT: forgot… what i did… compiled N2 from scratch and copied the config files over… :slight_smile:

This isn’t good, I’ve built an entire site around 1.3 and RRD tool all database driven. So I really can’t upgrade to 2.2? there is NO db support period? why??? :frowning:

Link above points out some items that may help you out. When I wrote that thread, I upgraded exactly as you. i.e. 1.2 to v2.x.
I can only suggest that you start using nagiostat instead of your mysql/rrdtool if you do plan on upgrading.

Other than the fact you have a great need for mysql, the upgrade is very quick, if you take into account the items I point out in the thread above.

I got it working I had no such issues save the contact_groups (which i posted in that other thread BTW).

Now I need to find a perl-ish way to take everything out of the database and put it in that flat file.

Perhaps I should make a smal conversion script, and freshmeat it or something :slight_smile:

There is nagios-db, which is delayed, cuz it takes info from the flat files and puts it in a DB I think. So maybe it wont really matter in the end. hmmm.
