SourceGuardian

Upgrade to 1.2C and started getting an error about SourceGuardian. Add this to my /etc/php.ini or php.ini file located elsewhere file:

 extension=ixed.5.1.lin

Dave?

During an upgrade to 1.2c you may need to hold shift and click reload or whatever your browsers equivalent is to by-pass proxy servers and cached pages. I'm not sure how to say this... but I'm not talking about "clearing the temporary internet files" instead I'm talking about "hold shift and click reload".

Login Redirecting

The web browser keeps redirecting to the login screen even after entering login credentials.

Nagios XI uses cookies to save session state. These cookies are set to expire after 30 minutes. If the time on the Nagios XI server is incorrect, the cookies returned to the client's browser might appear to be expired due to the time difference between the client's computer and the Nagios XI server. Solution: Fix the time on the Nagios XI server to ensure it is correct.

Deleting Hosts

Hosts can only be deleted after all of their dependent services have been deleted. This is to protect against accidental deletion of a large number of services.
