Nagios: Free disk space : Invalid drive


Hi,

We are using Nagios to monitor our servers. One of the items we monitor is the diskspace. We use the following code in our config file:
Code:
define service{
        use                     generic-service,srv-pnp
        host_name               servername
        service_description     C:\ Drive Space
        check_command           check_nt!USEDDISKSPACE!-l c -w 80 -c 90
        }

define service{
        use                     generic-service,srv-pnp
        host_name               servername
        service_description     D:\ Drive Space
        check_command           check_nt!USEDDISKSPACE!-l D -w 80 -c 90
        }

The check for the C-drive works fine. The check for the D-drive gives "Free disk space : Invalid drive".

Any help to solve this minor problem will be appreciated.

The error seems clear...there may not BE a D drive to check. Have you verified that it's there? And if you're applying this to all your servers, are you sure they all have a D: drive?

We use seperate config files for all our servers, so this little inconvenience is only affecting one server.

I checked disk management to be sure. The particular server has two drives, C and D.

I checked the config file for the particular server again, and after some time noticed that i changed the servername but forgot to change the ipaddress.
