Hard and Soft Passive Check

Postby estebanmonge » Thu Apr 04, 2013 2:58 pm

Hello I have problems with passive checks.

In local server I configured host checks with 1 minute, 1 minute retry and 3 retry.

In remote server (central server that accept passive checks) I have configured passive_host_checks_are_soft=0

When I have one soft state in local server and resend to remote server (central server), in remote server the check is Hard.

How can I configure soft/hard checks in remote server (central server) without modifing passive_host_checks_are_soft=0 to emulate behavior of local server?

Please see "Passive Checks and Host States" section at the bottom of
http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/passivechecks.html

I believe translate_passive_host_checks is what you are looking for

Well, as the page states
Note: Passive host checks are normally treated as HARD states, unless the passive_host_checks_are_soft option is enabled.


I would say there is no way to do it without enabling this feature
