[Nagiosplug-help] Problem with check_dhcp

I found many extra plugins that weren't installed with the normal installer.
Look for where you untared your standard plugs.  You untar the
nagios-plugins-1.3.0.tar.gz and get a new directory. In that directory you
will find a contrib directory.  Inside "contrib" there are a bunch of .c
files that you can compile for new plugins.  Then copy the newly created
plugin to your libexec and run it ./check_whatever -h to see the

Anyone have a reponse for my check_dhcp problem?

  I'm looking for extra plugins to download.
  when you say "contrib directory", which site are you talking?

  I found check_dhcp.c in the contrib directory.

  I typed "make check_dhcp" and it made the "check_dhcp" file.

  I then copied the check_dhcp file to libexec.

  Added it as a service definition then added the two DHCP servers built on
  that definition.

  Did a "../bin/nagios -v nagios.cfg"

  Error: Service check command 'check_dhcp' specified in service 'DHCP' for
  host 'xxxxx' not defined anywhere!
  Error: Service check command 'check_dhcp' specified in service 'DHCP' for
  host 'xxxxx' not defined anywhere!

  What do I need to do?

  In the services.cfg I used this as the DHCP template

  ----start template----
  # Service Template for DHCP
  define service{
         use                             generic
         name                            generic-dhcp
         register                        0 ; keeps this template from being
         service_description             Check DHCP
         check_command                   check_dhcp
         contact_groups                  admins
  -----end template----

  See anything wrong? Do I need more with the check_dhcp command... probably
  something similar to the check_ping!100.0,20%!500.0,60%

  Thank you for your help!
