Hi … I have been using icinga 1 for many years and have just installed the latest version onto ubuntu 18 platform. (time to upgrade!)
I have added the director module and am ready to start adding hosts and services… But I have to say the documentation is of very limited use to the newbi .
This needs sorting this out, most will give up long before they arrive here!! all that work for nothing!!
So can someone please give me a step by step basic tuto for director (icinga2 is easier to manually configure than using director which is supposed to simplify the job!! )
I would like to :
1, create a host object (I got that I need to create a host template first ) (I have done this but not sure it’s as it should be )
2, create a service object (do I need a template here also? What is the logic here?)
3, configure a customized check_nrpe calling a script on the remote server (couldn’t fathom how or where to add to $vars ) (I will probably change this in the future but at the moment I have a lot of existing nrpe clients)
Also is there any way to make check_nrpe talk V3 talk to V2 (-2 has no effect) (I’m doing this from the cli as I haven’t figured out how to add this as a service using director)
apply the service to a bunch of hosts (or just 1)
I really need a help to get the basic principles straight and I will put together a idiots guide (in english) once I have understood the way to approach director…
Ps I have seen the book in German but … it’s in German book I can’t even google translate it!
