go to the windows machine.


Look under Administrative Tools | services.


Right click on rtvscan service, and choose properties.  


There is a short name given near that top. That's what you need to give
as your argument. A lot of times these short names are acronyms or some


Check the mcshield one too for verification of this.


Good luck.

Subject: [Nagiosplug-help] Nagios check


I am trying to figure out why the check_nt command will not check
rtvscan.exe exactly like the mcshield.exe process.


I use the check_nt command as follows:


/opt/nagios/libexec/check_nt -H myhostname -p 1248 -v SERVICESTATE -d
SHOWALL -l mcshield

mcshield: Started


This command above works perfectly fine. But the command below to check
rtvscan.exe will not work


/opt/nagios/libexec/check_nt -H myhostname -p 1248 -v SERVICESTATE -d
SHOWALL -l rtvscan

rtvscan: Unknown 


I do not have mcshield and rtvscan on the same machines.

I know that the process rtyvscan.exe is running on the machine because I
see it run in the task manager.

I am using the nsclient on the host and version 1.4.2 of the check_nt
plugin on the server.


Any idea why I can't check rtvscan process on the machine?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,
