Fujitsu servers

Postby orani » Fri Jan 06, 2017 8:01 pm

Hi all,

I have some fujitsu servers and i try monitoring them throw the management card.
I got the "" script from here ( ... 29/details).

When i run the script from the command line i get the response i should. For example i run a check for the server fans and i get "cooling ok" as a response. When i run the check for the temp i get tempratures for every available sensor. That is perfect.

The problem is that when i run the same check from nagios by defining a service and the necessary command i am getting a general response for everything and not just for the wanted.

You can see below what i mean.

From command line:

[root@telematics libexec]# ./ -H Infra1 -A -C public --chkenv-fan
OK Cooling(ok)
[root@telematics libexec]# ./ -H Infra1 -A -C public --chkenv-temp
OK TemperatureSensors(ok)

From Nagios (code is below - response is at the attachment):

define service{
host_name Infra1
service_description Management
check_command check_fujitsu_server!!-C public!'--chkcooling'
max_check_attempts 5
check_interval 1
retry_interval 1
check_period 24x7
servicegroups iRMC

What version of Core are you using? Was it compiled from source or installed from distro repos? On what OS/version is nagios running? cat /etc/*-release may be of use. These questions will help us double check file paths.

Is it possible you have two versions of Nagios running? Strange things can happen when one version is installed via repo and another is compiled from source.

My version is Nagios Core 4.2.0. It is compiled from source as the documentation says. I am running Centos 6.8. Nagios Core 4.2.0 is the only version of nagios that is installed and running

It may be a permissions issue, please run su - nagios (make sure to include the minus (-)) first:

Code: Select all
su - nagios
/usr/local/nagios/libexec/ -H Infra1 -A -C public --chkenv-fan

Send us the entire output if there are errors (it may be a /tmp file that has root permissions so the plugin can't access it when run by nagios).

Thank you
