I'm having major issues getting xinetd to work with nrpe for nagios monitoring. I'm a bit of a linux noob, but i've gotten nrpe to work fine on centos machines, sles servers, but for some reason this red hat machine is a PITA.
I started a thread over at the nagios forums and the conclusion is that for some reason xinetd won't start nrpe. We can start nrpe as a stand along daemon but xinetd won't start it.
Here is a link to the thread, it's quite long since we did a bunch of troubleshooting.
I don't even know where to begin on this one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
