I've migrated from Centos 7 to Centos 8 and then to Rocky

I've had more problems going from 7 to 8, Rocky was straightforward

So far everything is working okay but as always make a backup, then snapshot and give it a shot.

You should install the Nagios plugins on the Nagios server and install the Nagios NRPE agent on the servers you want to monitor.

cd /tmp
wget
tar xzf linux-nrpe-agent.tar.gz
cd linux-nrpe-agent
./fullinstall
The above will

Modifying the distro's package manager repositories
Installing prerequisite packages
Creating required uses and groups
Defining services for xinetd
Compiling and installing the agent and plugins
Configuring the firewall
