Hello folks,

I am currently using Puppet to forge the nagios configuration files. Using
exported ressources it really works well - to a point.

The one thing I am banging my head against is the service definitions. The
services use stuff like remote-nrpe-zombie-procs, which of course, is not
defined anywhere:

define service {
     ## --PUPPET_NAME-- (called '_naginator_name' in the
manifest) check_zombie_procs_gaming
     use remote-nrpe-zombie-procs
     host_name gaming.alpha-labs.net

So far I am letting puppet generate the three configs:


Tho for this to work I would need a corresponding commands.cfg and all the
Howtos out there do not seem to have my problem. The important snipplet
from my config would be this:

  Nagios_host <<||>> {
      require => File[resource-d],
      notify => Service[icinga],

  Nagios_service <<||>> {
      require => File[resource-d],
      notify => Service[icinga],

  Nagios_hostextinfo <<||>> {
      require => File[resource-d],
      notify => Service[icinga],

  Nagios_command <<||>> {
      require => File[resource-d],
      notify => Service[icinga],

After banging my head for 3 evenings on this I really need your help.
Thanks for any pointers.
