Unhappy Config issue check_oracle_health with nagios

I have a problem to integrate plugin check_oracle_health into nagios for monitoring oracle db (tablespace, ...). (Nagios 3, Ubuntu 9)
I have tested the plugin with the command line and it works correctly:

# ./check_oracle_health --connect=ablorcl2 --user=system --password=xxxxxx --mode=tablespace-usage

WARNING - tbs ABILLITY_TABLES usage is 90.71%, tbs USERS usage is 2.58%, tbs UNDOTBS2 usage is 3.24%, tbs UNDOTBS1 usage is 0.50%, tbs TEMP usage is 3.34%, tbs SYSTEM usage is 4.03%, tbs SYSAUX usage is 3.19%, tbs STATSPACK usage is 0.45%, tbs PM_TMPIDX_001 usage is 82.80%, tbs PM_TMPDAT_001 ...

but when I integrate it into the config files to nagios I see on the web interface of nagios:

Oracle Tablespace UNKNOWN 07-28-2009 22:08:48 0d 4h 1m 26s 3/3 Copyright (c) 2008 Gerhard Lausser

Here is my config for commands, service and host:

define command {
command_name check_oracle_tbspace_abl02
command_line $USER1$/check_oracle_health --connect=$_HOSTORACLE_SID$ --username=$ARG1$ --password=$ARG2$ --mode=$ARG3$ --warning=$ARG4$ --critical=$ARG5$

define service{
use generic-service ; Name of service template to use
host_name abldb02
service_description Oracle Tablespace
check_command check_oracle_tbspace_abl02!ablorcl2!system!xxxxxx!tablespace-free!80!90

define host{
use linux-server ; Inherit default values from a template
host_name abldb02 ; The name we're giving to this host
alias abldb02 Oracle ; A longer name associated with the host
address ; IP address of the host

Frankly I tried many things but I saw nothing at all!
May be an error in my config file!
If someone has an idea or fact has already worked with nagios plugin check_oracle_health that I would be grateful to show me the way!
Thank you!
Excuse me for my english !

command_line $USER1$/check_oracle_health --connect=$_HOSTORACLE_SID$ --username=$ARG1$ --password=$ARG2$ --mode=$ARG3$ --warning=$ARG4$ --critical=$ARG5$
just remove the "=" sign, keep a space and try it
command_line $USER1$/check_oracle_health -c $HOSTORACLE_SID$ -u $ARG1$ -p $ARG2$ -m $ARG3$ -w $ARG4$ -c $ARG5$

Checked the command line I'm using and this works for me on Nagios 3/Debian Lenny against Oracle 10g
$USER1$/check_oracle_health --connect SERVER --user username --password password --mode tablespace-usage
Kind regards,
