Subject: [Nagiosplug-devel] nagios plugin written in sh

Hi all,

I am writing a shell script which ought to select a certain cell from a
mysql database (specified in the parameter) and, if found, return OK/0,
if not a CRITICAL/2. Now something really strange happens. I test the
plugin on the command line, being the same user as the nagios process.
Everything works fine. So I put the plugin command into my
checkcommands.cfg and associate a service with it, wait... and now comes
the surpise: mysql exits with a status 1 - not 0 as it should, even if
it does NOT find the cell I'm asking for. Anybody ever had such
problems? What can I do about this?
