I successfully got Icinga up and running, and I am very pleased to say that this tutorial is pretty much how I did it.   When it came to nrpe, it required a slightly different configure command formation.  I also skipped the sendmail section in favor of Postfix, because it was already configured.  I also used more recent versions of the software used without penalty.  Sometimes things can get crazy if you stray to newer versions, but not in this case at this time.

Thanks for the great work!

...but the image of the browser is too small to make out the URL that is supposed to reach icinga. A line of text would be enlightening and helpful.

Hi, I got stuck at step 5. I guess it is because I am using the latest packages. Xampp 1.8.1 & Icinga 1.8.3. There muct be something I am missing that I can perform anything beyond step 5. Please help.

My best compliment for this article, very useful.

I have some questions:

1) Why do you prefer to use daemon user instead nagios?

2) Why do you preferer to use nsclient instead of nrpe_nt on Windows?

3)  What GUI do you suggest?

4) Could you add some info about how to use mysql (to store events) and how to generate graphs?
