I have just installed and configured nagios v. 2.8 with version 1.4.7 plugins.
When nagios runs and starts calling plugins as listed in command.cfg, they bomb. Nagios keeps running.
For example, when nagios attempts to run check_ping it gives the error:
[blockquote] Warning: Attempting to execute the command "/check_ping -H 127.0.0.1 -w 3000.0,80% -c 5000.0,100% -p 1" resulted in a return code of 127. Make sure the script or binary you are trying to execute actually exists...[/blockquote]
Looking at command.cfg shows the path to the check_ping command as:
So it looks like nagios is returning a null value for the variable $USER1$.
I tested my theory by changing $USER1$ to the full path to the plugins, /usr/local/nagios/libexec and it works fine.
Does anyone know why this variable is not being set, or being set wrong?
When I configured the make file for nagios, I used:
[blockquote]./configure --prefix=/usr/local/nagios --with-cgiurl=/nagios/cgi-bin --with-htmurl=/nagios --with-nagios-user=nagios --with-nagios-group=nagios --with-command-group=nagios[/blockquote]
For the plugins, I used:
[blockquote]./configure --with-nagios-user=nagios --with-nagios-group=nagios
Thanks for any insight you can give.
