Dell Hardware status Error- Failed to execute check_openmana

Postby rohithroki » Thu Apr 12, 2018 7:40 am

Hi Experts,

I am getting the error when I monitored the Dell hardware status.

"Failed to execute check_openmanage: 2: The system cannot find the file specified"

Nsclient Agent version :
Server :Window server 2008 R2

As we don't see the plugins folder in the latest version of Nsclient. could you please let me know the path to put the external plugin called "check_openmanage.exe"

we have created the plugins folder and copied the plugin into it. but it's throwing the error.

Please find the Nsclient config file for the reference.

Thanks in Advance.

@rohithroki, The plugins directory can be anything as long as you specify the correct path in the ini file. In your nsclient.ini file i found the following:
Code: Select all
check_openmanage="C:\Program Files\NSClient++\plugins\check_openmanage.exe -s -e -t 120"

So I'd expect the plugin to be in C:\Program Files\NSClient++\plugins\ directory.
