NRPE SSL handshake


#1

I am adding a CentOS Asterisk server to be monitored and everything goes fine until I edit the /usr/local/nagios/etc/nrpe.cfg file. Once I make any changes to that file I start to get “ERROR: could not complete SSL handshake” errors. The only way I have found to get passed this is to recompile/install nrpe. I need to edit the nrpe.cfg file to change the check_hda1 command to check_sda1 and look for dev/sda1 for check_disk.

If you need more information just ask, any help is much appreciated, thanks in advance.

Looks like the permissions for the file where wrong nagios only had 644, gave it 775, edited nrpe.cfg, restarted xinetd, and it’s working.
