On fresh install of nagios & plugins, missing plugins


#1

On Centos 5.2, I just did a fresh install of:
nagios-3.2.0-1.el5.rf
nagios-plugins-1.4.13-11.el5
nagios-nrpe-2.5.2-1.el5.rf

Because we maintain our own repos, I downloaded the appropriate rpms and did “yum localinstall”. I didn’t see any complaints on the install.

But /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins only contains:
eventshandler (directory)
negate
urlize
utils.sh

The only thing I can think of is to uninstall+reinstall.

Thanks for any advice…Lyle


#2

drop the rpm install and install from source. fewer problems way better chances of getting assistnce when needed.

plugins should be in the libexec directory.


#3

Because we must retain our own repos, I had to work from an rpm. But I did uninstall everything, and built my own rpms from the sources. Not too hard, with a little help from this blog post:

On reinstall from these rpms, everything looks good.

Thanks for the help…Lyle
