  • Hello


    I am from following the instructions for migrating from 3.x Nagios to icinga2 on Ubuntu 16

    is there any latest information


    https://www.icinga.com/2010/11…ng-from-nagios-to-icinga/


    Some of the instructions are quite old and does not work e.

    apt-get php5 as quite old as Ubuntu now has php7.0

  • you are using the instructions to migrate to icinga1 not 2.

    There is no direct migrationguide for nagios 3.x to icinga2.


    The best way would be to setup a new machine to learn how Icinga2 works and then migrate service for service and host for host.

  • thanks for your email

    let us start from basic

    I want to add a hosts in the host.conf e.g an example for just ping

    where do I start from and where do I add it in this


  • please take a look here. https://monitoring-portal.org/cms/index.php?faq/

    nobody in the forum will give you a step by step rundown on how to do things, it just takes way to much time.

    The Icinga2 Documentation should cover all your basic needs.

  • Get familiar with the basics, and once you've gone through all objects, attributes, etc. you can start deploying things.

    If your approach goes further into distributed systems with masters, satellites and clients, I still advise you to keep it standalone and simple beforehand.
