Let me introduce myself since i'm new to this forum. I'm Maarten and work and live in the Netherlands as a System engineer. Been doing that now for a couple of years and enjoying it for the greater part so far. Since I've started at my new job this February I've worked a lot with all kinds of linux software and a bunch of Ubuntu Servers. Learned a lot about linux the past months and really enjoy this great OS!! It brings back the IT nerd in me that I kinda lost with managing windows enviroments. Besides my job and (of course) my related hobby I have a 2 great dogs who also need a lot of attention and they keep me occupied when I'm not working/hobbying or going out to some techhouse party which is another way I like to spend my spare time.
Well, thats me in a nutshell. Of course I'm not here for the chit-chat. Here's a problem I have @ the job, perhaps some(one) might have a solution for it:
We have a couple of servers (w2k8) that we've monitored with Nagios. Due to some changes in our network these servers where cloned and reinstalled on virtual servers in a cloud enviroment. No problems whatsoever occured and all servers are running wonderfully stable. However al physical servers had a C:\ drive AND a D:\ drive. In the new setting, the virtual servers don't have a D:\ drive anymore, however Nagios still tries to monitor these servers' D: drives. I've taken a look at the NSC.INI where the service for this monitor seems to be defined as:
- Code: Select all
alias_disk=CheckDriveSize MinWarn=10% MinCrit=5% CheckAll FilterType=FIXED
alias_disk_loose=CheckDriveSize MinWarn=10% MinCrit=5% CheckAll FilterType=FIXED ignore-unreadable
alias_volumes=CheckDriveSize MinWarn=10% MinCrit=5% CheckAll=volumes FilterType=FIXED
alias_volumes_loose=CheckDriveSize MinWarn=10% MinCrit=5% CheckAll=volumes FilterType=FIXED ignore-unreadable
Due to my limited knowledge of Nagios and the NSclient++ what i understand from this is that NSCLIENT/Nagios automatically detected the C: and D: drives and added them to the services checks.
Can anybody tell me how to let Nagios know the D:\ drive doesn't excist anymore and that it doesn't have to wake me at 2:00 am to warn me there is a problem with 11 missing D:\ drives??
Thanks in advance!!
