    no-importance host notification not sent, but services are

    Maby it's just wrong understanding of how things work..

    I have defined a host (let's say for example a print server), which is checked simply by check_ping.

    This print server has http service (from default installation /packs/network/services/http), which of course uses generic-service as template.

    I thought that if I set the host as no-importance (on this host template definition I have notification enabled = 0), the same rule will apply to services of that host.

    Because if some host is not important, and I don't want to know if it goes down, it seems logical that I also don't want to know about services on this host.
    Am I right?
    Or, if I'm wrong, is there some option on host definition to turn off services notification also?
    I will give example configuration when I'll be at my monitoring server.

    Services will inherit this parameter only if it's not set in one of their templates. Look at generic-service, I think the parameter is set at 1. If so, comment the line
