Questions about Nagios export
When I do a Nagios export, I get the message "Nagios config written to /usr/local/idoit/nagiosexport"
and then a list of all the written config files. First aside from "commands.cfg" and "timeperiods.cfg"
all files had length of 0 bytes. Since I entered for every device the IP-address also in the
"Nagios export" settings (though they already had a "host address"), I do have entries in
"hosts.cfg". What is necessary to get the other configuration files filled?
I have read in another thread that contacts have to be assigned to every object to be exported,
but I have already done this. Do I have to assign the Nagios class to every contact and service
etc? What sense would then make an entry of "ip address" for a contact?
Thanks for an answer, regards, Olaf

As far as I can see the problem without really knowing the config, I would say that you are missing some aparametes in the objects Nagios category. You have to turn on atleast some important attributes like "display_name", "check_command", "active_checks_enabled". This is not a complete list of fields, im just trying to recognize it from my memory without testing it. So maybe you should start with playing around with these fields.
