Nagios services file


#1

I’ve created the following data bags:

/chef-repo/data_bags/nagios_contacts/nagios_contacts.json

{
“id”: “systems”,
“alias”: “systems”,
“use”: “default-contact”,
“email”: "nshah@theorchard.com"
}

*/chef-repo/data_bags/nagios_contactgroups/nagios_contactgroups
*

{
“id”: “it”,
“alias”: “Non-Administrator Contacts”,
“members”: “systems”
}

*/chef-repo/data_bags/nagios_services/all_ping.json
*

{
“id”: “ping”,
“hostgroup_name”: “all”,
“command_line”: “USER1/check_ping HOSTADDRESS -w 100.0,20% -c
500.0,60%”,
“servicegroups”: “ops”,
“contact_groups”: “it”
}

So why is it that when I do a chef-client, I am getting this and no where
is the contact_groups being defined:

}
define service {
service_description ping
hostgroup_name all
check_command check_ping
use default-service
servicegroups ops
}

Also, some of the other services are using other service groups and that is
not being reflected in the services.cfg even the data bags are all up to
date.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
