Prerequisites to Install Nagios XI Offline
Nagios Enterprises can only support installing Nagios XI on a newly installed, clean system.
The server must have access to base repositories for both RedHat or CentOS either via a local repository, or mounted DVD’s.
Additionally, on RHEL systems we will need the following packages from the Optional Channel installed on the server:
RHEL 6 Optional Channel Packages graphviz-gd.x86_64 perl-IO-stringy.noarch perl-Parse-RecDescent.noarch perl-XML-Simple.noarch php-mbstring.x86_64 php-snmp.x86_64 rrdtool-perl.x86_64 rrdtool-python.x86_64 RHEL 7 Optional Channel Packages dejavu-lgc-sans-fonts.noarch dejavu-lgc-sans-mono-fonts.noarch graphviz-gd.x86_64 perl-Crypt-DES.x86_64 perl-Parse-RecDescent.noarch php-mbstring.x86_64 php-snmp.x86_64
Download and Install Nagios XI Offline
We begin by visiting https://repo.nagios.com/?repo=offline and download the Nagios XI Offline RPM Tarball for distribution and architecture.

# cd /tmp/rpms # tar xzf nagiosxi-5-4.7.el7.x86_64.tar.gz # cd nagiosxi # ./fullinstall
Once the installation completes, we will be able to navigate to our server via a browser to complete the installation.
