I’m trying to migrate a ICINGA install from one VM to another.
This is because the source was installed by a partner and we would like to migrate to a new VM with all the OS updates and ICINGA updates and gather more knowledge of the plataform.
So far I’ve managed to install the latest ICINGA in a new VM perfectly following this guide:
Please note, that I don’t mind installing the agent in all my monitored hosts to migrate the new ICINGA.
So I have a couple of questions:
After the install, do I have to run icinga2 node wizard to setup the Master? If so, why when I do that the Icinga Server disappears from the hosts? (If I don’t I get the error critical/cli: Ticket salt (–salt) must be specified.) when trying to create the ticket for the host.
To monitor Windows VM’s should I use Powershell plugins (as I’ve read here somewhere) or do I use the agent as I did with the old install?
I’ve noticed that in my old install I have zones configured. Where can I configure that? Is it during the Master setup?
Is PNP still the best way to get metrics from hosts?
Can I configure https for icingaweb2 portal?
Why in the setup there was no need to use SSL (should I?) and is there a problem that I did not select UTF8 for the DB?
Basically, I’m a bit lost from where to go from after the initial install, can anyone advise or provide some help?
