If that file gets deleted off of the server that server will be taken out of service for new connections and still allow existing connections. For some reason this isn't working, when looking at the stats page all servers show UP even though only one of the servers has the /alive.htm file on it. I am running 1.3.19 on a 64bit architecture.

I was using " option httpchk HEAD /nagios.htm HTTP/1.0\r\nHost:" and no special "htto-check disable-on-404" and it worked fine, in at least. Received on 2009/08/05 14:55
