Here is an example command line you would use to delete a single host called somehost. If the host name has a space in it, enclose it in double quotes like this "some host".
./sqldelete -o somehost -m localhost -u root -p nagiosxi -t nagiosql


Here is an example command line you would use to delete multiple hosts.
The hostfile option is a list of hosts you want to remove.
./sqldelete -f hostfile -m localhost -u root -p nagiosxi -t nagiosql

The names of the hosts need to be on a separate line like the example below.

host name
dummy_host
localhost
host1.name
testhost
bad host

Notice that the host names with a space do not require double quotes around the name.

Here is a description of the steps the application takes when executed.

1. It will run a verification of the configurations. If there is an error. It will exit.
2. If the verification is good, it will create a backup.
3. It will go through the host or hosts to remove and build tables of the objects to remove.
4. It will remove all of the objects and run a verification of the new configurations.
5. If good, it will Apply the Configurations and restart the Nagios process.
6. If the configuration does not verify, it will restore the backup and notify you. Unless the -r option is specified. It will not restore the backup and it will not restart Nagios. This allows you to login to the XI GUI and resolve the configuration issue manually.
