New problem


this is problem on one of my server .i have installed nrpe and it shows be correct result from shell of my nagios server but the nagios shows it as unkown?

Can anyone help


from my nagios server when i run the cmmd
./check_nrpe -H Remotehostip -p 5666 -c check_load
i get correct output
OK - load average: 0.72, 0.72, 0.76|

but from nagios web interface i get this err
Incorrect command line arguments supplied

also my services.cfg file entry is
check_command check_nrpe!check_load
and my nrpe.cfg file entry for check-load is

command[check_load]=/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_load -w 15,10,5 -c 30,25,20

what can be wrong



Please tell us how you fixed your last problem/thread.

What is the deifinition in checkcommands.cfg for check_nrpe?


Hi jakkedup

i have fixed this problem also.there was syntax error in my check_nrpe command definition.

i would like to ask one question.should the openssl version on nagios server and remote host be the same or if they are different they would still work?



My guess would be that they could be different versions.

PS, I don’t see the syntax error in any of these problems. Could you show us the sytntax error?

in my checkcommands.cfg i forgot to write
-H before it was showing unkown.


hey and on my 2 servers i have difft ver of openssl but nrpe isnt wrkng can the difft ver cause problem?


Ahh, so it was the definition in checkcommands, as I guessed. Good to hear that.

I don’t think ssl versions would be the problem. Try it reading the README.SSL that came with it, and double check your work.
