Nagios cookbook 5.0 release


#1

In keeping up with the blazing fast pace that Seth is setting for cookbook releases, a new release of the Nagios cookbook version 5.0 is out. The major change in this version is support for installing the Icinga fork of Nagios that required changing just about every other line of the cookbook. The cookbook now also includes limited tests for the client recipe, and support for chef-dolo in the client recipe.

The version has been bumped to 5.0 due to changes in the key layout for Pagerduty integration, and due to the switch from openldap to htauth for the default web authentication (COOK-3730).

If you run on a RHEL family system you’ll definitely want to upgrade to this new version as a change to the download URL for the nagios plugins tar ball broke source installs in the 4.2.0 release.
