Hi Rick,

Just make sure that your script exits with an appropriate return code (0=OK, 1=Warning, 2=Critical, 3=Unknown), then call them from NRPE, or whatever remote execution method you prefer.  There are some good guidelines at http://nagiosplug.sourceforge.net/developer-guidelines.html.

Subject: [Nagiosplug-help] custom check scripts on windows

Hi All:

Running Nagios 3.x on a Centos server.
I have some custom check scripts on a WIN 2003 server that I would like to incorporate into nagios checks.
The scripts are bash shell scripts running under cygwin. The scripts work fine but how do I get nagios to run them and check the result?
