Reload partially completed

I've just downloaded and set up the Opsview Atom Appliance, maybe I'm missing something but I'm struggling to get new hosts added.

I've managed to get hosts added via a network scan, and sorted them into several host groups which I've created.  However, on the hosts list, I can't seem to do anything useful with these hosts because there's a reload pending.  When I go to complete the reload, I get a warning that the last reload had an error, but attempt it anyway.  The reload appears to run through then returns the same error, but the number of outstanding changes is now 0.  Hosts are no longer shown as 'pending' in the list view, but I'm still not able to manage them properly as there's a reload pending.

The error shown on the reload screen is "Cannot contact time series server - post reload process aborted"

I'd appreciate any advise on how to investigate this.

From the command line as the nagios user, can you run

opsview_watchdog summary

and post the output?  I am specifically looking at the 'timeseries' lines to make sure they are all running and monitored.

Thanks for the quick response

Thanks for the quick response.  As you can tell, I'm pretty new to the product, so please excuse the silly question.  Where do I find the credentials for the nagios user?

Can you check in syslog to see if there are any error messages for timeseries?

Can you check if port 1600 is being listened to correctly?

`netstat -nlt | grep 1600`

The daemons can be restarted using:

`opsview_watchdog opsview-timeseries restart`

for each of the daemons.

This appears to be resolved

This appears to be resolved now.

The appliance was rebooted last night to apply some changes, and I took the opportnity to point the ntpd.conf file to my local timeserver at the same time.  I'm not sure if this is related to opsview-timeseries or not.

I've reloaded the config several times now, and it appears to be going through OK.
