Hi 2 All!

I got one question regarding check_disk plugin, it's work actually.

I have Solaris 9 box (SPARC) with compiled plugins (1.4.13) and NRPE
daemon (2.12), done with SSL support. Monitoring host is RHEL4,
When I'm trying to check some of the plugins locally (i.e.
/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_disk -w 10% -c 5% -p /) it's working
fine, without errors.

<solaris9_box>> /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_disk -w 10% -c 5% -p /
DISK OK - free space: / 851 MB (21% inode=86%);|

But when I'm doing it through monitoring host (via Nagios
- it goes with "DISK CRITICAL: / not found".
While all others plugins - such as "CPU Load", "Current Users", "HTTP
check" - are working OK.
It's not SSL shaking error, because I did all the checks, and other
plugins working OK. But when I'm trying to check disk space - all

PS. I have a few other Solaris boxes (v9), with the same versions of
plugins and NRPE, compiled the same way. And all working OK on them
regardin disk space usage.

Yours faithfully,

I have the exact same problem with one of my sles9 boxes. Other checks
to same box work fine.  Any light to this problem would be most welcome.

I'm using debian etch as my nagios box and i'm using nagios 3.0.5 with
NRPE 2.12
