I am setting up my nagios system to monitor NTP on all of our servers 
(about 60).  all but 3 are working fine.  On those 3, when I try to run
/web/apps/nagios/libexec/check_ntp -H <hostname>  -w 180 -c 300  (same 
exact format as the others, only hostname is different on each)  I get 
the following error.

Could not open ntpdate

The XNTP is running fine, the date/time is correct on the server, and 
when I try to run something

# ntpdate -q <ntp server>
I get
server, stratum 3, offset 0.001669, delay 0.02609
31 Aug 15:18:56 ntpdate[18850]: adjust time server offset 
0.001669 sec

So everything appears to be fine and dandy.  any ideas whats up with the 

all of the boxen are sun boxes running solaris 9, but I have several 
other sun boxes running solaris 9 that work just fine.
