The notification appears to work normally if the service escalation config 
is omitted.
Is there any relation between it?

[Nagios-users] re-notification problem

Dear community, 

I just noticed that my system (Nagios 3.2.0) don't re-notify the 
contacts.However it sends notification to escalation contacts. 
So what id does is that it sends first notification to the host contact 
then after next 4 hours it sends notification to escalation contact and 
keep sending every 4 hours. 
As far as I know, if the notification interval is 240 minutes and first 
escalation is triggered after 2 notifications are sent to the host contact 
then the escalation contact should get first notification after 480 
minutes. Correct? 

My setup: 
First notification to the contacts --> re-notify after 4 hours - re-notify 
after 4 hours and and send escalation to leader
