The installation process is little sipmler with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS as rsyslog is already integrated.
You’ll notice that the installation process is almost the same as the old one.

You will need Centreon-Syslog installation files. Please go to http://forge.centreon.com/ and register. You’ll be able to download sources after that:

http://forge.centreon.com/projects/list_files/centreon-syslog

Download the stable release (when I wrote, it was the 1.2.1 version). After getting the frontend and server files, transfer them on your server with WinSCP or any other tools you like.

WinSCP is available as setup or portable version http://winscp.net/eng/download.php Continue reading »

Hi,

I’ve corrected my two previous posts to correct ndoutils high IOwait cpu usage:

Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS with Nagios 3.2.1 and Centreon 2.1.6
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Nagios 3.2.1 Install (Part 1)

If you have already installed your solution, proceed as follow:

cd /usr/local/src
sudo wget -r -k -np http://svn.centreon.com/trunk/Patch-NDOutils/
sudo /etc/init.d/ndo2db stop

Check if you have no more ndo2db instances:

ps -A|grep ndo2db

Hi, you have probably noticed that the new LTS release is out 🙂
So I decided to update the intallation process. You’ll probably notice that it didn’t change so much regarding to the 8.04 (in fact a few packages have their name changed, rsyslog natively integrated into the system, and so on)

Before starting the installation process, let define some rules we will follow: I recommend that before you start any installation you define a template for the naming scheme of your monitored machines. I decided to uses this one (but it’s up to you to create your own): 3 first letters for customer-name of the machine-environment. In my case it’s ACT-CENTREON-TEST (ACT for ACTIVLAN, Centreon for my computer and test for the target environment) for the central monitoring machine.

Hi,

Recently trying to package silent install of “Evolan Report” product. I faced with this error:

I googled a lot and found many posts complaining that it’s a Terminal Server issue but without solution.

Finally using the following command line before the setup arrange everything:

change user /install

After you finish your setup, just switch back to execution mode:

change user /execute
