Disable host check/ping in nagios

Spread the love

problem I want to validate services of a host, though the host is not pingable (e.g. public www server)

solution For the host definition make sure no 'check_command check-host-alive' line is there (including lines inherited from templates). For nagios 3.2 / gentoo I changed my template for the host to 'generic-host' and added 'max_check_attempts 10' and 'contact_groups admins'.
