check_time error


#1

i wanna use check_time plugin ,have these lines in services.cfg file :

"
define service{
host_name vmachine
service_description time
is_volatile 0
check_period 24x7
max_check_attempts 4
normal_check_interval 5
retry_check_interval 1
contact_groups admins
notification_interval 960
notification_period 24x7
check_command check_time
}


but when i run nagios ive got this error :
” Error: Service check command ‘check_time’ specified in service ‘time’ for host ‘vmachine’ not defined anywhere!
"
it means it doesn’t know plugins? why ?
how can i solve it ?

check_command check_time

this means you need to have the check_time definition in checkcommands.cfg. the service configuration file doesn’t directly access the plugin.

I realize you may be new to nagios, so take this suggestion as it is meant. You should get very intimate with the documentation and understand each and every part.
nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/1_0/
