January 25th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

1.Download and install the centreon-syslog-server
# wget http://forge.centreon.com/attachments/download/568/centreon-syslog-server-1.1.tar.gz
# tar -zxvf centreon-syslog-server-1.1.tar.gz
# cd centreon-syslog-server-1.1.tar.gz
# chmod +x install.sh
# bash install.sh -i
go thru the interactive setup, u will need the mysql root pass.
Make note of the new syslog user created

2. Download and install centreon-syslog-frontend
wget http://forge.centreon.com/attachments/download/567/centreon-syslog-frontend-1.2.1.tar.gz
# cd centreon-syslog-frontend-1.2.1.tar.gz
# chmod +x install.sh
# bash install.sh -i
the folder of “instCentWeb.conf” should be /etc/centreon

3.Go on Centreon web interface
Go on menu ‘Administration > Modules > Setup’.
Syslog module must be present on modules list but not installed.
Click on right icon to start installation

4. Go on menu ‘Administration > Modules > Syslog configuration’.
Fill the fields

5. Go on menu ‘Monitoring > Syslog > Monitoring’

6. On windows machine install the Centreon E2S, wich will forward
the events you filter to the syslog centreon server.
download from here:

Change the config.ini IP of the server
Make sure the centreon server rsyslog is listening in port UDP 514

Also u will need ssh2 library to work in php and apache

# wget
# rpm -i php-pecl-ssh2-0.11.0-2.fc11.i586.rpm
# echo “extension=ssh2.so” >> /etc/php.ini
# service httpd restart
