***> One or more problems was encountered while processing the config files...

Check your configuration file(s) to ensure that they contain valid
directives and data defintions. If you are upgrading from a previous
version of Nagios, you should be aware that some variables/definitions
may have been removed or modified in this version. Make sure to read
the HTML documentation regarding the config files, as well as the
'Whats New' section to find out what has changed.

[root@server1 ~]#

I check Remote-machine.cfg file........

I guess it should be /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/Remote-machine.cfg, not /usr/local/nagios/etc/objcets/Remote-machine.cfg (notice 'objects' and not 'objcets').
The error at config test is plain simple 'no such file or directory, so there is something why it cannot even find the file. It says nothing about the contents of the file.

If you correct above error, the test will continue to parse the config file.
