So I downloaded the NRPE_NT service and the plugins from Nagiosexchange.org. I’ve looked at the simple installation steps and have done as requested, executing nrpe_nt.exe -i from the appropriate directory. The problem is, when I go into services to try and start the service, I get this error:
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
I get a similar error when I try to run net start nrpe_nt. Any idea what’s going on here guys? Also, just out of curiosity, how do I tell the NRPE_NT daemon to reference the location of the nrpe.cfg file?
FYI, the paths to my plugins and the nrpe_nt.exe file are C:\nagios\bin\ and C:\nagios, respectively, if that matters any.
