Migrate NagiosXI from Centos to Amazon Linux

Post by lrnnetops »

Hello Everyone!

As Centos is going to be end of life, we are planning to migrate NagiosXI from Centos to Amazon Linux.
For NagiosXI, can we use Amazon Linux 2 or 3 ?

Hey @Irnnetops

Unfortunately we currently do not support Amazon Linux and the installation process would fail without alterations. The distros we currently support are RHEL, CentOS, Oracle, Debian, and Ubuntu.

While we don't officially support Amazon Linux in any capacity for any version, from what I can tell Amazon Linux is based on Red Hat based distributions. As such, an installation may work, but I would expect you to run into issues sooner or later, even if it works initially. It would likely take a good amount of work on your end in the long term to maintain any compatibility between Nagios XI and Amazon Linux.

In short: it may work, but we can't help you if anything goes wrong.

Hi @lrnnetops,

If you just need to be able to run NagiosXI in AWS, we do have AMIs available, although they are installed on CentOS.
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
