Hi, currently I'm working for sending alert notification (SMS) through Nagios 3.2. I have configured Nagios to send SMS using smstools3 but it doesn't send out any SMS.

Here are the config:

i) /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/commands.cfg

define command{
command_name notify-host-by-sms
command_line /usr/bin/printf "%b" "***** Nagios *****\n\nNotification Type: $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$\nHost: $HOSTNAME$ \nState: $HOSTSTATE$\nAddress: $HOSTADDRESS$\nInfo: $HOSTOUTPUT$\n\nDate/Time:$LONGDATETIME$\n" | /usr/local/bin/sendsms $CONTACTEMAIL$ "** $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$ Host Alert:$HOSTNAME$ is $HOSTSTATE$ **"
}


define command{
command_name notify-service-by-sms
command_line /usr/bin/printf "%b" "***** Nagios *****\n\nNotification Type: $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$\nHost: $HOSTNAME$ \nState: $HOSTSTATE$\nAddress: $HOSTADDRESS$\nInfo: $HOSTOUTPUT$\n\nDate/Time:$LONGDATETIME$\n" | /usr/local/bin/sendsms $CONTACTEMAIL$ "** $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$ Service Alert:$SERVICEDESC$ on $HOSTNAME$ State: $SERVICESTATE$ **"
}


ii) /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/contacts.cfg


define contact{
contact_name zulfadhli-SMS
alias Zulfadhli
contactgroups admins
service_notification_period 24x7
host_notification_period 24x7
service_notification_options c,r
host_notification_options d,u,r
service_notification_commands notify-service-by-sms
host_notification_commands notify-host-by-sms
email 6019XXXXXXX
}

iii) /etc/smsd.conf

When compiling Nagios using /usr/local/nagios/bin/nagios -v /usr/local/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg it shows no error. I can send SMS manually using sendsms command but it doesn't send any alert SMS if one (or more) of my monitored server went down. Any helps and suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks

p/s: do I need some sort of "sendsms.sh" script on /usr/local/nagios/libexec

Ah, one more thing. I run everything as a root. Is this might be a permission issue?

I do not use Nagios myself, but I know that there are users who use it successfully together with Smstools3.

Perhaps you have a permission problem. You are running smsd as a root, but under what user the Nagios is executed? Perhaps it cannot create a file into the outgoing directory? Can you check the permissions of outgoing directory (ls -l /var/spool/sms), and make it world-writable (chmod 666 /var/spool/sms/outgoing) if necessary.

Thanks keke for the reply.

It is indeed permission problem. It's working now. These are my configs.

i) /var/spool/sms/outgoing

drwxrwsr-t 2 smsd smsd 4096 2010-03-22 14:59 checked

Hi Ven,
I am interested to get the Wavecom Fastrak Supreme 10 with serial connectivity and work on CentOS 4.8. I think it should work with SMSTools3 .

BTW, which Wavecom model are you using?

I'm using Wavecom Fastrak also. Yes, its a serial.

You wont have any problem using CentOS 4.8. There's plenty of solution provided here. You can check them out. I got one friend using CentOS with SMSTools3 and it works just fine.

Good luck on your project ;)
