Nagios hosts


#1

For anyone that has configured nagios, why/how does this work.

I ran knife bootstrap winrm …. -r 'role[vector]
This role has services tied to

However, its adding this host to the following host group

define host {
use server
address XX.XX.XX.XX
host_name V2MQ14
hostgroups all,vector,windows

I simply want just the host groups to be vector and not windows/all…

The Nagios cookbook creates host groups for each OS so that you can apply base OS monitoring in a mixed OS environment. Without that you’d have to create fake roles for each OS and apply the monitoring of things like load, drive space, etc to those roles. If you really don’t want those host groups you can hack it out of the cookbook:

In the hosts.cfg.erb template remove all references to <%= n[‘os’] %>.
In server.rb find the each loop that adds n[‘os’] to the host groups variable and remove the entire thing.
