"Notifications for this service have been disabled" ?

One negative caveat to making something like NEMS so easy is that people with little Nagios experience/knowledge will be trying to get things to work for their purposes too. I'd be one of those types of people.

I've added only a single (external) host to attempt to test out how to get certain things working. In adding the host via NConf and generating and applying the config, everything seems OK with no errors. After checking on the added host through NagVis (as well as the default installed host) I'm noticing that the SSH and HTTP services are disabled from sending notifications. As far as I can tell I've enabled notifications on my added host. I also made sure to update the admin user with a valid email address, and successfully tested the email settings via the shell command test.

I do see other topics discussing email notifications not working, but I'd imagine they've already checked other areas of the interface to verify there are no defined symptoms like I'm seeing here.

NEMS version 1.3

My added host config:

define host {
               host_name                             saratogareads.org
               address                               saratogareads.org
               max_check_attempts                    5
               check_interval                        15
               retry_interval                        1
               first_notification_delay              0
               notification_interval                 15
               notification_options                  d,u,r
               active_checks_enabled                 1
               passive_checks_enabled                0
               notifications_enabled                 1
               check_freshness                       0
               icon_image_alt                        Linux
               icon_image                            base/linux40.gif
               statusmap_image                       base/linux40.gd2
               check_command                         check-host-alive
               check_period                          24x7
               notification_period                   24x7
               contact_groups                        +admins
               use                                   linux-server

Anyone have any thoughts or ideas on what I might've missed?

A more general Nagios question:
By default in these service groups it's checking SSH/SWAP etc, but it's checking localhost (NEMS). Could someone point me to the documentation on how to go about checking an external host's processes? I'm assuming I'd have to write some of my own bash scripts (or find pre-existing ones).
