Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

In the configuration section of the Nagios section in the Server Guide, it is difficult to tell what server you need to issue the commands on. I figured it out once I read it again and figured out that you needed to create a configuration file for server02 *on* server01. I was banging my head against the desk for a few minutes trying to find the configuration directory on server02 in my setup. I'm proposing that this be changed to better reflect what commands are used on what machines. Here is what you have in the original:

- 1) First, create a host configuration file for server02. In a terminal enter:

        [sudo cp /etc/nagios3/conf.d/localhost_nagios2.cfg /etc/nagios3/conf.d/server02.cfg]"

I propose to change it to something like this:

- 1) First, create a host configuration file for server02 for the nagios server on server01. In a terminal on server01 enter:

        [sudo cp /etc/nagios3/conf.d/localhost_nagios2.cfg /etc/nagios3/conf.d/server02.cfg]"

Thanks for your work, Patrick. I was not able to merge the branch into the Natty dev branch, so I downloaded the diff and applied it manually with a few formatting changes. Fix committed to rev 589 of the Natty dev branch.
In the future, it is easier if you simply post a patch to the bug report for small changes like this rather than making a whole new branch. You can just check out the current dev branch, make your changes, and grab the diff, e.g.
   bzr diff > ~/my_patch.diff
and attach my_patch.diff to the bug report.
