Postby jbowen7 » Fri Sep 27, 2013 2:16 am

In ubuntu 12.04, installed from the repos (3.2.3)

my functions are at:
/lib/lsb/init-functions

it's worth editing /etc/init.d/nagios with that

Yeah, but you will run into other issues (status, runuser, etc). I will try to get Ludmil to post a copy of the init script we hacked out the other night. It is not perfect, but it does work.

I replaced the /etc/init.d/nagios file with the reccomeded updated and when I attempted to restart nagios I received this

Code: Select all
root@nagios downloads/nagios# /etc/init.d/nagios restart                                                                     
$Stopping nagios:                                                                                                             
$Starting nagios: /etc/init.d/nagios: 149: daemon: not found

so after using the recommended init script and installing daemon (apt-get install daemon), I restarted the nagios process an everything looked good.
Code: Select all
root@nagios downloads/nagios# /etc/init.d/nagios restart                                                                                                                                     
$Stopping nagios:                                                                                                                                                                             
$Starting nagios: 


Until I went to look at the Nagios web interface. it looked like the Nagios service was not running (see attachmet whoops.png)
I checked the status and got this
Code: Select all
root@nagios downloads/nagios# service nagios status                                                                                                                                           
is not running ... failed!

THis time I manually stopped an started the service using

Code: Select all
root@nagios downloads/nagios# /etc/init.d/nagios stop                                                                                                                                         
is not running ... failed!
root@nagios downloads/nagios# /etc/init.d/nagios start                                                                                                                                       
is not running ... failed!
$Starting nagios:


This time nagios was actually running and I could see my Service status

When I rebooted I saw this:
Code: Select all
is not running ... failed!
$Starting nagios:


but when it was back up and running. Nagios seems to be working as expected.

Its kind of ugly, but it seems to have solved my issues.
