Backup Exec check_nt


Hi Newbie here, I am trying to monitor my backup exec servers via Nagios
and the check_nt_!! Commands and I and just getting connection refused

Can anyone help me with this? I don’t understand why it isn’t working as
there is nothing in the NSClient++ logs to say that the connections are
being stop or blocked.

I am using check_nt_berpc, check_nt_bejobe, check_nt_bedms and

If there is another easier way of get to my goal I am open to offers
but if I can get this to work it fine for what I require.

Many Thanks


Hi Bud,
you need to have a look at your commands.cfg to see what your check_nt_berpc, check_nt_bejobe, check_nt_bedms and
check_nt_beagent are returning.
I am monitoring Backup Exec on out network and i use the standard check_nt command
define command{
command_name check_nt
command_line $USER1$/check_nt -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -p 12489 -v $ARG1$ $ARG2$
and in .cfg file
define service{
use generic-service
service_description Process Backup Exec Continuous Protection Management Service
check_command check_nt!PROCSTATE!-d SHOWALL -l rmsservice.exe

So the command that nagios is actually submitting would look somthing like what is below.

./check_nt -H -p 12489 -v PROCSTATE -l rmsservice.exe
You can run the below command in your usr/local/nagios/libexec dir and see what data it can return.
You can monitor any windows process this way.
hope it helps.
