Virtual Parent Object


Hello to all!

My first post here :slight_smile:

I would like to know if it’s possible to create a virtual host just for adding a “layer” between my two ESX Servers Cluster and their Virtual Machines.

For example, if the ESX01 goes down the ESX02 starts automatically but all the machines configured with ESX01 as parent will also generate alerts.

What I would like to do is unite those two ESX do a virtual host and from there the virtual machines.

My Nagios version is 2.7.

Thank you very much for your attention!

Best regards,


I’ve found out a sort of solution :slight_smile:

Placing “generic-host-nocheck” and a fake IP in host configuration did the trick!

Best regards,
