    Zabbix server is running No

    Maybe I am having a blonde moment, but...

    I have installed 1.9.9 in a test environment (obviously).
    The Dashboard shows me:

    Zabbix server is running	No
    if I give the command #ps -A | grep zabbix, I get

    which means both the agent and the server are running.

    Further more, it is gathering data, which means it is running...

    Is this a bug or have I been indoors too long without sunshine?

    Pointing to correct port?

    One quick an easy thing to check is if your web interface configuration file (zabbix.conf.php) is pointing to the correct server and port.

    The two following variables should be set to the correct values:



      Ok, have re-installed the test server with Ver 2.0.0rc1 (I have also reinstalled the OS)

      The Overview (triggers) show that the zabbix server is up.
      The "Status of Zabbix" on the dashboard says no.
      Attached Files


        I worksr to me. I just put the server's IP at $ZBX_SERVER in zabbix.conf it says "zabbix server is running = Yes


          Upgraded to 2.0.0rc3 and the problem went away

          I see there is a change to the format of the zabbix.conf.php file


            Same problem on rc3

            I have the same on rc3.
            I do test it on (ZBX_SERVER)
            I didn't try with it's real ip, but that shouldn't be an issue, though?

            Minor problem, but still annoying...
            I run Centos 6.2
            i use rpm apache, mysql and php....

              I have same issue with fresh installed 3.0.4, but change to IP address did not help me solve it.

              Looking for solution.....


                Zabbix server is running No

                I had the same issue and followed/verified all the settings but I also changed the ListenIP of zabbix_server.conf to the host's ip address and reloaded zabbix server and it worked like a charm. I figured that it was referring to ip address from the zabbix_server.log messages like below and looked up the zabbix_server.conf for the ip address which had been assigned to the ListenIP directive.

                cannot send list of active checks to "": host [feplnx7] not found

                Let me know if that fixed your issue.


                  Please tell me the detailed version and installation method of Zabbix and OS you are using.

                  Suppose you have Zabbix 3.0.7 installed on CentOS 7.3.1611.
                  If you changed ListenIP in zabbix_server.conf, please also change the setting of the Web front end.
                  For CentOS, it is the following file.


                  Please change the value of $ZBX_SERVER_PORT in this file to the changed value.

                  Also check that the host named "feplnx7" is registered.



                    Yes, I did change the values in the zabbix.conf.php file. I changed the values for the below parameters and it is a Zabbix 3.0.7 installed on CentOS 7.3.1611.




                      Hi nawazahmed,

                      Is your problem outputting the following error?

                      cannot send list of active checks to "": host [feplnx7] not found
                      If so, please check that the host is registered with the hostname "feplnx7".

                      This is output when the character string specified by the Hostname of the Zabbix agent does not match the character string of the host's name registered on the Zabbix server side.


                        Hi Atsushi,

                        The issue is resolved now, I had the same as raytracy and MrQ and I was responding to them that change the ListenIP to the ip address of the server fixed it. The host is indeed registered with the hostname.

                        And thank you so much for your updated regarding the $ZBX_SERVER_PORT parameter.
