[install-daemon] Error 1 and Error 2


Hey guys,

Fairly new to the nagios community. I have been doing good so far, I have the server up and running and already monitoring a windows server however, I am trying to configure the daemon on a linux server we would like monitored. Its Suse Enterprise Server 10.

I have followed the detailed instructions within the nagios documentation. I am at the point where I have to configure the daemon. I get this (which by the way I am logged in as root).

TSVCS:~/downloads/nrpe-2.12 # make install-daemon
cd ./src/ && make install-daemon
make[1]: Entering directory /root/downloads/nrpe-2.12/src
/usr/bin/install -c -m 775 -o nagios -g nagios -d /usr/local/nagios/bin
/usr/bin/install: invalid group nagios' make[1]: *** [install-daemon] Error 1 make[1] Leaving directory/root/downloads/nrpe-2.12/src
make: *** [install-daemon] Error 2

I do not understand this error, I did create the nagios usergroup as previously explained in the instructions. Can someone provide me with some feedback?


I fixed the issue.
