Help needed getting Nagios Check_logfiles working with Windows
Iím very new to Linux & Nagios but I have made some good progress until now.
I have Nagios working and the check_logfiles plugin installed on my Ubuntu box and NSClient ++ installed on my windows box.
My end goal is to be able to get the check_logfiles plugin to flag certain words in Windows Log Files.
I can call the check_logfiles from the Ubuntu command line and it works fine when I look at a local log file on the Nagios box.
If I try to do something similar but point to a remote windows file the process fails.
I have NRPE enabled and I think working on the Windows machine.
Before I post Config files etc can someone tell me if my approach is correct? Should I be calling the check_logfiles plugin from the Nagios box or do I need to install the Windows version of Check_logfiles on the remote machine and then make some sort of reference to it in the NSC.ini file on the Windows box.
Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,
Your second guess is correct. If you use NSCLient++ on the Windows machine you need the necessary plugins on that machine and execute/configure the commands in the ini file. Nagios connects to the NSClient++ and tells it what command to execute. That command must be defined in the ini file on the Windows side.
