Our routine maintenance requires services have to be brought down.
The problem is these services have Nagios checks and we either have to go to the web interface and disable the check or get the emails.
Is there a way from command line on a Windows and/or Linux guest to disable the Nagios check (or notifications) and enable it? Ideally this would happen on the machine we are performing the maintenance on, not the Nagios server itself.
I would like to disable notifications/checks pre-maintenance and re-enable them post maintenance.
