[quote=“jakkedup”]"the status of my host appear to be down all tho its receiving ping responses back from the server and according to nagios there is no packet loss,…"
Explain that in more detail please.
If nagios reports no status loss, then nagios is not reporting it as being down.
Service check check_fping responds as OK, then the host is NOT reported as being down.[/quote]
well i figured out what the issue was,. in checkcommands.cfg i was hardlinking the check_ping function to /bin/ping instead of $USER1$/check_ping ,… and apparently that was what caused all the hsot down issues…
but in regards to the tftp problem,. take this to account,. i am not monitoring a tftp server on localhsot,… i am monitoring a tftp server on a remote (windows) host ,… could that be the problem ?
thsi is the output i get ,…
[root@lookout libexec]# ./check_tftp --connect 126.96.36.199
"tftp> Error code 1: TFTP Error: File does not exist"
but according to the check_tftp script ,… the correct response your supposed to receive is … “tftp> Error code 1: TFTP Error: File does not exist”
so im not sure if nagios si the one misinterreting the output…
ps: thanks for the help, its greatly appreciated.
