Icinga Install

I would like to get in to a more SysAdmin role, so I’ve been using a home lab to try to learn new tech. So I spent a few days  putting together a step-by-step run through for installing Icinga. This did two things: 1) I had to learned Icinga enough to use it 2) I had to understand installation enough to explain in.

I haven’t been much of a fan of MySQL, particularly since Oracle, so I wanted a PostgreSQL database, which took a bit of research to get it to not bug out. I refined the process down to a few steps.

This is only for Icinga w/ Postrgres on Enterprise Linux derived systems.

Below is the notes I worked from while making the videos. Note that I used Scientific Linux Minimal Installs to start, so I had to install everything I needed as I needed it.
