Nagios CNAME alias checks fixed

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’ve just fixed a problem with host/service checks in Nagios (generated by bcfg2 templates) where host names which were CNAME (aliases) were being converted to the host name of the underlying host. We were as a result only seeing checks for the underlying host and not the vhost. As this is now fixed there appears to be a number of new problems detected by those service checks. You may see some notifications if you were listed as a service manager for the related project.
