[Nagios-devel] Downtime page bug or misconfiguration?

Postby Guest » Mon Jun 24, 2002 5:33 am

The bugs page forwarded me to this list.. We went ahead and took the
dive and migrated our NetSaint installation to Nagios 1.0b3. Everything
seems great for the most part, but the new "Downtime" page (/cgi-
bin/extinfo.cgi?&type=6). When any of our users try to use the Downtime
page to mark a host or service as down, it says we are not authorized:

Sorry, but you are not authorized to commit the specified command.

Read the section of the documentation that deals with authentication and
authorization in the CGIs for more information.

However, marking hosts & services down via other methods works just
fine. As you can see, that page (or at least the header) knows I am
logged in as "strombt". Nothing gets printed to the apache or nagios
logs it would appear. The access rights follow:

strombt@newton:/usr/local/nagios/etc% grep authorized_for cgi.cfg

Are others seeing this in their configurations with 1.0b3? If someone
needs the output, I can go ahead and recompile with debug mode enabled
(wish it was runtime, alas).
