Nagios XI - Configuration Applies, No Changes Take Place

Postby etomovic » Wed Oct 27, 2021 7:30 am

Hi all,

We have installed Nagios XI and we have problems adding and monitoring new hosts.
Following the installation, localhost came pre-added to the hosts list, is present and is being monitored. We have tried to add new host via CCM. New host is present in the CCM host table, "Active" box is checked in the Host management settings. When we apply configuration, it appears to be succesful, no errors. Host config is present in /usr/local/nagios/etc/hosts.
Despite all of this, new hosts won't appear amongst monitored hosts - only localhost remains monitored.
When we remove localhost host via CCM and apply new config, localhost remains monitored anyway.
Basically, we cannot do any configuration changes as it seems these are being completely ignored.

I went through the KB article, which is perfectly describing our situation, but nothing mentioned there helps us.

https://support.nagios.com/kb/article/n ... ce-39.html

We are running Nagios XI 5.8.6 (free version atm) with Nagios Core 4.4.6.

Many thanks for any help.

Under the admin tab in NXI there's a manage config files (or something like that) menu. Try using that to remove and rewrite the config files.
