Did you still need some help with this? Not sure if this is what you meant but here goes:
The only item that first showed up was localhost after I added the devices I wanted to graph on my network to the myrouters.txt file (This doesn't really work as far as it building cfg files)
I renamed my cfg files to whatever i wanted them to be because there was a troubleshooting link that came up up when rrdtool and routers2.cgi were trying to read the files and could not read them. Oh and as a side note before I forget, upgrade activestate perl to the latest version and download the the latest version of rrdtool. You need the perl-shared directory and add it to c:\mrtg\rrdtool directory and then run ppm install rrds.ppd within the perl-shared directory.
Ok now on to the cfg files on the main page.
I followed the instructions from http://bmonday.com/articles/692.aspx
and everything was ok but the cron file was not seeing the cfg files in the c:\mrtg\mrtg\bin folder. I had to manually edited the cron file in $WINROOT$\system32 folder to match the names in the c:\mrtg\mrtg\bin folder because I was getting an error when I executed the Update_MyRouters.bat file (c:\mrtg\bin\cp.EXE: cannot create regular file `/WINDOWS/system32/': Permission
denied . I tripled checked the permissions and still get this error tonight when I just tried it) and bingo now they showed up on the routers2 site. This will not overwrite the existing cfg files only prime them (i guess to write the correct entries to the cron file if it can).
If you have existing cfg files from mrtg that you are upgrading from, remember to keep the workingdir at the bottom of the cfg file that you move to the mrtg/mrtg/bin folder. RRDTOOL will see this and go hunt down all your graphs for you: day, week, month and year. Really slick!
Also add this to the top of existing mrtg files that you may want to convert to rrdtool:
I Remmed out this at the top since I wanted the graphs to update faster than the 5min interval in mrtg:
and add the following:
#Options[_]: growright, bits
I also tried installing mrtg bundle to another drive letter and it messed it all up. I am hoping in furture release (if there are any, that we can install it anywhere we want to).
It took me about 3 hours the other night to figure that out above with the cron file. Hope this helps!
I will post my own version of the mrtgbundle install doc here when I am done with it Steve. Thanks again for the great software!
