etc/init.d/nagios-nrpe-server: command not found

I am trying to install NRPE on on my nagios server on Ubuntu 20.04 using this guide:
https://searchitoperations.techtarget.c ... monitoring

It seemed to go smoothly until i had completed the install and configuration and tried to start the nrpe server with this command:
Code: Select all
# sudo /etc/init.d/nagios-nrpe-server start


And got this error
Code: Select all
sudo /etc/init.d/nagios-nrpe-server start
sudo: /etc/init.d/nagios-nrpe-server: command not found

I am at a standstill until I can get this to start so any help is welcome

Not sure it is significant but I did get this warning during the configuration step but it didn't halt the install.
Code: Select all
checking for Kerberos include files... configure: WARNING: could not find include files


Thanks

Hello @mthyvold

Thanks for reaching out, appears that the source is not standard, please go ahead and download and install:

The NCPA monitoring agent is an excellent recommendation as well found here:
