It's installed but the last command did not function : DBI connect('nagios:localhost:3306','nagiosro',...) failed: Access denied for user 'nagiosro'@'localhost' (using password: YES) at /usr/local/nagiosbp/lib/ line 68 PS : I use Nagios/Centreon not Icinga. – M. Saâd Sep 18 '12 at 22:58

Please note: You must define a host or service in nagios first of all, than You have to reload nagios, wait a minute and after this, You can use it in a Business Process. – quanta Sep 20 '12 at 2:25
