Nagios Core, where to configure Password 4 NSClient++

Postby 32578324 » Fri Apr 22, 2022 6:45 am

Hello, I'am a absolute Linux noob.

I want to build a Nagios Core Server for about 100 Systems.
I hope you don't read the question for the 1000 time.

When I configure a Password in NSClient++ (on a Server I want to monitor), where do I configure the Password in Nagios?
Is this a variable in the windows.cfg file under "define host"? Do I need to only state the pw in "define host" or in every "define service" too?

And do I really need to write the Hostname in every "define host" like:

Code: Select all
define service {

    use                     generic-service
    host_name               host01,host02,host03,host♾
    service_description     Uptime
    check_command           check_nt!UPTIME

or is there a workaround?

Thanks in advance.
