Angry Nagios !!!!!!


I am in the process of setting up nagios core, problem is I am fully windows based. So far I have even impressed myself with the knowledge obtained.

However linux is not windows that's a fact. I am struggling to fully configure nagios core to send automated email notifications to myself or a distribution group.

anyone that can assist as I don't have a clue what's next.

Before Nagios (or ANYTHING) can send emails out, you have to configure your mail services, just like you would have to on Windows. You don't say what version/distro of Linux you're using, but chances are you've either got postfix or sendmail installed. You need to configure mail services to have a smart host/relay server. Without knowing which version/distro of Linux you have, we can't tell you how to check which one you've got.

You say nothing about your environment, but assuming it's for a business, you've probably already got a mail server in place. Tell your existing mail server to accept and relay messages from your Linux/Nagios system. From there, it's a fairly easy process to point your Linux system to the other mail server.

So, a few details from you, and we can help.
