Nagios Core 3.2.1 “Insta-Install”

I think I already posted something here about Nagios… but maybe not as I was doing a test install last week following a DEMO of ScienceLogic EM7 appliances and I couldn’t find any easy steps… so this one may have slipped through the cracks… I have added the script I just made below…  This does nothing more than make Nagios usable, you will need to do all of the customization on your own…  I also made a nice vm but since I am a ‘cheapo’ on here it is too big to host it… I will try to find a free host and put the link up here as that would save even more time if you plan to use it as a vm guest 🙂
