Hi Tony,

I'm monitoring using the following userparameter (basically run "ipactl status" and grep out lines which are known good so only errors are returned):

UserParameter=ipa.status,sudo /usr/sbin/ipactl status 2>&1 | egrep -v "(INFO\: The ipactl command was successful$|: RUNNING$)"

ipactl needs root access so I have a file in /etc/sudoers.d/zabbix with these lines to allow the zabbix user to sudo the ipactl status command only without a password:

## Allow zabix to query ipa status
Defaults:zabbix !requiretty
zabbix ALL = (root) NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/ipactl status

The final challenge I had was selinux which I had to create a custom rule for (but most people seem to just disable selinux).

Then just create a trigger to alert if the returned value contains any characters. eg this matches on any char apart from whitespace:

{Custom Template IPA Server:ipa.status.regexp([^\s],1200)}=1

If anyone else has a better way to do this I'd be interested to hear it.

Hi guys,

Anyone got this working?

And if so, how did you do it?

I know I can monitor the components separately, but if you know of
anything that can do it easier I'd be happy to know about it.
