Email notifications failing

Postby QPII » Fri Nov 22, 2019 5:02 pm

Im having issues sending notifications on my set up of Nagios 4.4.1

Which mail returns

/usr/bin/mail

In my command.cfg I have

Code: Select all
define command{
        command_name    notify-host-by-email
        command_line    /usr/bin/printf "%b" "***** Nagios *****\n\nNotification Type: $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$\nHost: $HOSTNAME$\nState: $HOSTSTATE$\nAddress: $HOSTADDRESS$\nInfo: $HOSTOUTPUT$\n\nDate/Time: $LONGDATETIME$\n" | /usr/bin/mail -s "** $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$ Host Alert: $HOSTNAME$ is $HOSTSTATE$ **" $CONTACTEMAIL$
        }

# 'notify-service-by-email' command definition
define command{
        command_name    notify-service-by-email
        command_line    /usr/bin/printf "%b" "***** Nagios *****\n\nNotification Type: $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$\n\nService: $SERVICEDESC$\nHost: $HOSTALIAS$\nAddress: $HOSTADDRESS$\nState: $SERVICESTATE$\n\nDate/Time: $LONGDATETIME$\n\nAdditional Info:\n\n$SERVICEOUTPUT$\n" | /usr/bin/mail -s "** $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$ Service Alert: $HOSTALIAS$/$SERVICEDESC$ is $SERVICESTATE$ **" $CONTACTEMAIL$


And in my event log this is the result when I force a msg from the host. (I have used **** to remove the actual email address, but have verified and reverified the email address is not the issue)

Code: Select all

It's showing the command timed out

Can you run this from the CLI adding the email back in for ****@***.com?
Code: Select all
su nagios
/usr/bin/printf "%b" "***** Nagios *****\n\nNotification Type: CUSTOM\nHost: TESTEMAIL\nState: DOWN\nAddress: 10.1.17.17\nInfo: CRITICAL - Host Unreachable (10.1.17.17)\n\nDate/Time: Fri Nov 22 15:27:11 CST 2019\n" | /usr/bin/mail -s "** CUSTOM Host Alert: TESTEMAIL is DOWN **" ****@***.com

It was failing from the CLI as well and that ended up pointing me in the correct direction.

Thank you so much!
