[Nagiosplug-help] CHECK_NWSTAT

Do you run as user "nagios" from the CLI?  Could be a permissions issue....

Also, sometimes $USER1$ doesn't get set right.  It sounds like it's okay
because you get back "Nothing to check!" but it may be worth trying the
actual path in the check definition instead of the defined $USER1$.

Subject: [Nagiosplug-help] CHECK_NWSTAT


Am running latest Nagios and Nagios-plugins. Wanting to monitor Netware
6.5 servers. Have installed MRTGEXT.NLM and loaded module. Having a
problem creating correct checkcommands.cfg config. Mine is as follows:

command_line    $USER1$/check_nwstat -H $HOSTADDRESS -v VPFUSERS -w 25%
-c 10%

When I run this from CLI I get :

99735 MB (36%) free on volume USERS

On Nagios web page (Service Detail) it says STATUS is "UNKNOWN" and
Status Information as being "Nothing to check!". I am wanting a warning
when 25% of disk space is left and a critical at 10%.

What have I done wrong ?
