    Hi dnsmichi ,

    Just re-read your post, you have mentioned I am running distributed setup. Does this mean I am not running on top down config sync mode (as I am not running the global-templates) and the setup is just a Master with multiple clients?

    Agreed and Point taken. I know there are many things that take priority with project being open source. But just thought of being another soul to vote up on that request to help many like me.

    Anyways, I am doing a write up in what I have done so far…

    Thanks mcktr , dnsmichi and watermelon

    With an vast tool like this, I can understand the documentation cannot have all - and best way is to keep re-doing things as many times as possible and understand it. Some understand when reading, some when…

    The zones.d in the Master node, has the services.conf file created to…

    My complain was more towards the very generic example which is making it difficult for someone like me (first timer on everything linux\icinga\etc). From my understanding, yes the default templates existed in the global-templates zone of the master.

    In My Master node, Under Zones.d, in the folder: /etc/icinga2/zones.d/teampass.novalocal/hosts.conf, I did see the word "generic-host" defined. I have changed it now and rebooted the servers.

    Thanks mcktr .

    I have now defined or copied all my *.conf files under the global-templates folder. The new logs look good and the compilation also has no errors. (Below)

    However the Satellite node is still showing as "PENDING" and "UNHANDLED". :(

    I…

    Thanks for your response watermelon , I did check the zones.d location in the Master node. The hosts.conf of satellite node was present in /etc/icinga2/zones.d/teampass.novalocal/hosts.conf. After your reply, I have now moved the hosts.conf file by…
