Nagios does not start anymore after UCS Update

nagios

#1

Since UCS Update in February Nagios does not start anymore.
Before it was running fine.
If I try to start the service manually I see this:

root@s1:~# service nagios3 start
Job for nagios3.service failed. See 'systemctl status nagios3.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.
root@s1:~# systemctl status nagios3.service

Any hints how i can figure out the error to get the service up again?
Would be nice if anyone can help me.

Thanks

Hey,

unfortunately systemctl status only shows the last couple of lines a service unit has created, and in this case the interesting bits are in the messages that aren’t shown. Please try to start the service, run journalctl -u nagios3.service --since '5min ago' and post all of what it outputs. Thanks.

Kind regards,
mosu

Thanks a lot. That was the solution. It was an typing error in an nagios service “checkfping” should be “check_fping”.
It was my mistake :wink:
