I am new here and have read through documentation and ran a few searches but can’t seem to come up with the answer I need. At least I was not able to find it.
- What is the difference between notify-by-email and host-notify-by-email. I looked at their corresponding command definition in the miscommands.cfg file but I can’t decipher the functional difference.
Say I set up a check for VNC. Which email notification method will it use?
- Is it possible to exclude certain contacts for notifications? For example, consider this setup:
5 machines named A through E
1 usergroup called Admins
2 users called Adam and Eve, but in group Admins.
Adam wants to receive all notifications. Eve only cares about information pertinent to A and B.
I have a service setup called, say PING with contact_group = Admins, and host_name = A, B, C, D, E
Problem is Eve does not care about C, D, E.
Do I have to make TWO PING services now? I hope not because it’s not just one service. I would have to make duplicates for many services.
Any help would be appreciated.
