Nagios server install failed

  • #47834

    Installing 1.3.2 on SuSE with Ambari, I got this error with the Nagios server:

    notice: Finished catalog run in 0.16 seconds

    Any suggestions?

    I think I have a more recent version of the Nagios plugins package already installed on the node:

    # zypper info nagios-plugins
    Information for package nagios-plugins:
    Repository: SLES DVD Mirror
    Name: nagios-plugins
    Version: 1.4.13-1.35
    Arch: x86_64
    Vendor: SUSE LINUX Products GmbH, Nuernberg, Germany
    Support Level: Level 3
    Installed: Yes
    Status: up-to-date
    Installed Size: 1.9 MiB
    Summary: The Nagios Plug-Ins

    I tried removing the nagios-plugins package that was installed and also removed nagios-plugins-extras just for good luck. Then I retried the install and all nodes completed the install successfully!! I’m not sure that was the right thing to do but it’s progress!
