The initial problem was due to the 
plug-in’s log file been own by root. Nagios could not write to the log hence the 
plug-in was not working when executed as nagios, deleting 
/tmp/check_dxml_drvstate.err and nagios automatically recreate the log file with 
permission to write to it fix the problem.

Subject: [Nagios-users] check_dxml_drvstate report incorrectly remotely

I running check_dxml_drvstate version 1.6 on a Sles10 (x86_64)
check_dxml_drvstate has 755 permission 

When i execute check_dxml_drvstate plugin locally like 
./check_dxml_drvstate-u nagiosdriver.services.unl -p password -d mail.urs-drivers.services.unl 

I get these responses 
Driver mail.urs-drivers.services.unl is RUNNING. 

as expected.

However when i execute check_dxml_drvstate plugin through nagios nrpe.cfg using check_nrpe 

I get the following responses 

Driver idworks.urs-drivers.services.unl is STARTING.

Even when the driver has been stopped I still get the response
Driver idworks.urs-drivers.services.unl is STARTING.  this only report incorrectly
when I run remotely via nrpe.cfg using check_nrpe

I am running version 2.5.1 of check_nrpe.
How can i fix the problem? can you help? please
