Is your livestatus set and xinetd restarted?  Disable = yes  may be the default…can’t remember.

# cat /etc/xinetd.d/livestatus
service livestatus
        type            = UNLISTED
        port            = 6557
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        wait            = no
# limit to 100 connections per second. Disable 3 secs if above.
        cps             = 100 3
# set the number of maximum allowed parallel instances of unixcat.
# Please make sure that this values is at least as high as
# the number of threads defined with num_client_threads in
# etc/mk-livestatus/nagios.cfg
        instances       = 500
# limit the maximum number of simultaneous connections from
# one source IP address
        per_source      = 250
# Disable TCP delay, makes connection more responsive
        flags           = NODELAY
        user            = lab
        server          = /omd/sites/lab/bin/unixcat
        server_args     = /omd/sites/lab/tmp/run/live
# configure the IP address(es) of your Nagios server here:
#       only_from       =
        disable         = no

Subject: [omd-users] Fresh Install of OMD 1.20 on CentOS 6.6 64Bit - Livestatus Not Running

Hi all,

As the subject suggests, I have created two new CentOS 6.6 64Bit servers and installed OMD 1.20 on them ready to use one as a master and the other as a slave. The installations appear to have gone fine and I have managed to configure the distributed monitoring and the config has gone from the master to the slave.

The issue I have is with Livestatus as nothing is getting reported back to the master. Also, when I run netstat -ln|grep 6557 on both machines, nothing is reporting.

My nagios.log shows the following:

[1431005132] livestatus: Finished initialization. Further log messages go to /omd/sites/SlaveRPLS/var/nagios/livestatus.log
[1431005132] Event broker module '/omd/sites/SlaveRPLS/lib/mk-livestatus/livestatus.o' initialized successfully.
[1431005132] Finished daemonizing... (New PID=1444)
[1431005132] TIMEPERIOD TRANSITION: 24X7;-1;1
[1431005132] TIMEPERIOD TRANSITION: 24x7;-1;1
[1431005132] TIMEPERIOD TRANSITION: none;-1;0
[1431005132] TIMEPERIOD TRANSITION: thruk_24x7;-1;1
[1431005132] logging initial states

and my livestatus.log shows this:

2015-05-07 14:25:15 deinitializing
2015-05-07 14:25:15 Waiting for main to terminate...
2015-05-07 14:25:17 Waiting for client threads to terminate...
2015-05-07 14:25:17 Logfile cache: flushing complete cache.

The above is happening on both machines.

So, I can see that livestatus is not running but not sure how to start debugging the issue from here as first time using it and OMD - any suggestions would be useful.
