Hi @fraju,

Thanks for joining the Nagios Community Forum! Looking out the output, it looks like the permissions may not be set correctly in the configurations.
Error: Could not open config directory '/usr/local/nagios/etc/servers' for reading.

Check the /usr/local/nagios/etc directory, it should look like the following:
Code: Select all

Once you clear that error, run the pre-flight check again to make sure you do not have any configuration errors.

Could you share your /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects.windows.cfg (redacting any necessary info)?

Also, it looks like your nagios.cfg has a cfg_dir specified for /usr/local/nagios/etc/servers but the path doesn't exist
