I’ve trying to install NRPE to a host to be monitored. What I’ve done, I’ve tried to install NRPE via yum / rmp to the host client.
I’ve installed Dag’s repo
Then installer NRPE through yum command
So, it went through the install and I’ve configured the NRPE on the /etc/xinetd.d/ and changed the IP address to that of my nagios server.
I had to install xinetd because it was missing on my test client. But, when I tried to edit the nrpe.cfg on the directory where it’s suppose to be - it’s not there. I tried to do a locate for nrpe.cfg, its like it wasn’t installed.
I tried following the instructions on this link http://www.learnacad.com/networking/monitoring/70-how-to-monitor-a-remote-linux-host-using-nagios.html?start=2
but it seems that this link is missing something or either that I’m missing something. I’ve tried looking at other websites but the instructions are pretty much similar.
I could use some help, thanks.
What am I missing
