@kernow5000, what would you like to do? As I see it, we have three options:

1. Leave this open in case you want to dig into it in the future.
2. Lock the thread
3. Turn debugging back on and send us the logs.

Seems like 3 is probably out, so 1 or 2?

Thanks!

I'll turn the problematic checks on tomorrow and enable debugging, then update you here. :)

Problematic checks re-enabled for the day and logging enabled (debug=1)

All set to email notifications only so shouldn't get too annoying. I'll PM logs to one of you tomorrow probably.

(Please treat with sensitivity) :)

Running for an hour or so so far. Not a single connection refused error and everything reporting normally.

Put debug to -1 as I have plenty of space and 1 was only really showing function calls.

Ah that's better.

Same old connection refused errors again on the checks I re-enabled.

I'll pm you some logs.

It looks like there is a missing " in the notify-host-by-email command. There should be one between the -s and the $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$.
Edit that command and change it from
Code: Select all
command_line    /usr/bin/printf "%b" "***** Nagios *****\n\nNotification Type: $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$\nHost: $HOSTNAME$\nState: $HOSTSTATE$\nAddress: $HOSTADDRESS$\nInfo: $HOSTOUTPUT$\n\nDate/Time: $LONGDATETIME$\n" | /bin/mail -s  $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$ Host Alert: $HOSTNAME$ is $HOSTSTATE$ **" $CONTACTEMAIL$

to
Code: Select all
command_line    /usr/bin/printf "%b" "***** Nagios *****\n\nNotification Type: $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$\nHost: $HOSTNAME$\nState: $HOSTSTATE$\nAddress: $HOSTADDRESS$\nInfo: $HOSTOUTPUT$\n\nDate/Time: $LONGDATETIME$\n" | /bin/mail -s  "$NOTIFICATIONTYPE$ Host Alert: $HOSTNAME$ is $HOSTSTATE$ **" $CONTACTEMAIL$


Save it out and restart nagios

Make sure the notify-service-by-email command is correct as well.

That is actually there, I just use nano and you know.. Column width clipping and all that.

(They are the standard notification commands that come in commands.cfg with Nagios... basically)

Unlikely they are wrong, as they haven't been altered.
