Nagios XI - Restoring Default Configuration

Overview

This guide explains how to restore the monitoring configuration to the defaults as shipped with XI. You may want to perform this if you've somehow messed up your configurations irreparably, or simply want to reset a test system.

 
Warning

 This is a destructive process and your existing monitoring configuration will be lost after performing this action.

 

Restoring Default Configuration

Open an SSH or console session to your Nagios XI server and execute the following:

cd /usr/local/nagiosxi/scripts/
./restore_defaults.sh

 

The following output is produced:
