I'm newbie with nagios. Trying to set up check_http for url like this:


Checked two possibilites shown below but always the result is same:

Current Status: 
Status Information:     HTTP WARNING: HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request

candidate 1:


candidate 2:

       check_command                   check_http!-H www3.ilkka.fi -u 
/servlet/page?_pageid=5347%26_dad=portal30%26_schema=PORTAL30 -s Mielipide

This works fine from command line!

# ./check_http -H www3.ilkka.fi -u 
/servlet/page?_pageid=5347%26_dad=portal30%26_schema=PORTAL30 -s Mielipide
HTTP OK HTTP/1.1 200 OK - 0.044 second response time 
|time=0.044249s;;;0.000000 size=42492B;;;0

as well this works fine:
# ./check_http -H www3.ilkka.fi -u 
/servlet/page?_pageid=5347%26_dad=portal30%26_schema=PORTAL30 -s wrongword
CRITICAL - string not found|time=0.084240s;;;0.000000 size=42492B;;;0

Thanks for your help.
