Merethis has released Centreon 2.1.8 (I’ve missed the 2.1.7 :))
The update is very simple:

cd /usr/local/src
sudo wget
sudo tar -xzf centreon-2.1.8.tar.gz
cd centreon-2.1.8
sudo ./ -u /etc/centreon

After accepting the license, simply answer yes to all the questions you’ll see.

When finished, connect to the web interface and follow the “NEXT, NEXT, NEXT” steps.
Your database will be updated twice (from 2.1.6 to 2.1.7 then from 2.1.7 to 2.1.8).

It’s finished.


Here are the changes since 2.1.6:

## Centreon 2.1.8

  1. Very good, thank you very much, you makes me win a lot of time and it seems we are working around the same products πŸ™‚
    I installed Cacti on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, it was fast and easy.

  2. Hey, first of all I’d like to thanks for such a good tutorial.
    I have a question : How can we add “statusmap-1.1” module into centreon? Are there any means to do this?
    And I’m using ubuntu server 10.4 with nagios3 (nagios3.0.6) and latest centreon with ndoutils (apt-get ndoutils-nagios-mysql) I have got a problem that the hosts are not up neither down in centreon interface but only via nagios interface. Is it the problem of ndo db?

    I have another nagios server which is 3.2.1 with the latest centreon also, i wonder if there are some means to install the Status Map 3D ? I really love to have a 3D view with this nagios server.

    Thanks in advance for answering my above questions. πŸ™‚

  3. Hi neeemooo

    I’m not sure that your module is still working with the new centreon version. I’ve googled a little and I have only found old posts (from year 2007 / 2008 and referring to oreon (the old name of centreon)). I’ve looked also looked at “Centreon Forge” and “Centreon Community Forge” and didn’t found news concerning this module.

    Concerning ndoutils I prefer not using the apt-get version. Give a try upgrading your nagios and ndoutil from sources. I prefer that because in case of system update I’ll have less chances to impact my environment.

    Take a look at your logs (/usr/local/centreon/log) maybe you could found something.

  4. Hello admin,

    Thanks again for you help. Yeah, it was what I supposed too concerning on status-map. Well, I was just wondering if those Network Administrators get a way to make it work or else. πŸ™‚

    I suppose it must be the same answer for Status Map 3D via Nagios3.2.1 (a module which works with nagios3.0.6) ?

    I will try not to do via apt-get version this time then. Let’s see if I can manage it. My status is a college-degree intern which means I’m a noob… in some ways. So please don’t mind if my questions seem to be very evident to answer.

    Thank you so much

  5. Hi neeemooo,

    No problem, we all have been noobs too one day in our life… I have one rule: there is no stupid questions. It’s always better to ask for an answer than acting like we undertood (and we don’t).

    If your are actually trying the new install, may I suggest you to use a virtual machine and use (or abuse) the snapshot feature. You’ll be able to revert quickly to previous state and try other configuration. VirtualBox should be enought as you could find it for all platforms (and it’s free).
    Using the apt-get package will use pre-define paths (wich may be different from the one used by the sources or my tutorial).


  6. Yeah, I am using v.m but not a v.b one, it’s a vmware infrastructure – client. : ) I know we can take as many as snapshot as wishes but we have to think of disk space too, don’t we?

    Why don’t you create a forum here? I’m afraid I may ask so many questions… out of topic

    I’m wondering why there is no more 3D for the latest version of Nagios; I find 3D module very interesting which we can see our network structure differently. Anyways.

  7. Hi,

    I’ll see if I have time, I’ll put a forum.
