I got this error when ruuning check_nrpe from nagios monitor.
First let me explain what I was doing:
I want to monitor the service on the remote host that is on different
subnet but reachable.
Nagios Monitoring Host: 192.168.1.5
Remote Host: xxx.xxx.xxx.10
nrpe daemon is running on remote host and check_nrpe is installed on
local nagios monitor.
nrpe is run as xinetd as:
# default: on
# description: NRPE
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/local/nagios/
server_args = -c nrpe.cfg --inetd
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
only_from = xxx.xxx.xxx.10
From Nagios monitor:
# check_tcp -H 192.168.1.5 -p 5666
TCP OK - 0.000 second response time on port
This shows that nrpe daemon is running on the remote host.
# check_nrpe -H 192.168.1.5 -p 5666 -c check_procs
CHECK_NRPE: Error receiving data from host.
check_procs plugin is installed in remote host.
When check_nrpe is executed on local nagios monitoring the remote host
syslog message shows:
Nov 21 13:10:41 hostname xinetd: execv( /usr/local/nagios/ )
failed: Permission denied (errno = 13)
On remote host:
the permission to the files are for root.root and 755
The firwall on both hosts are stopped. It seems that I am not able to
execute the check_procs or anyother commands at remote host from nrpe_check.
I would be grateful if you kindly help me to sort out this problem.
