Error nagios-exec-start-pre

Postby l4t1g0 » Thu Jun 16, 2022 4:10 pm

Hi guys,
I installed nagios-4.4.7-1.1.i586 on tumbleweed 20220527, when I try to start it I get the next error:

jun 16 15:47:27 repo01 systemd[1]: Starting Network Monitor Nagios...
jun 16 15:47:28 repo01 nagios-exec-start-pre[5827]: /usr/lib/nagios/nagios-exec-start-pre: línea 17: shift: contador de desplazamiento fuera de rango

Current installed packages are:

resource.cfg perms
repo01:/home/jose # ll /etc/nagios/resource.cfg
-rw-rw-rw- 1 nagios nagcmd 1308 may 25 13:40 /etc/nagios/resource.cfg

Any ideas?

I created this file:

sudo vi /etc/systemd/system/nagios.service
and added the following:



ExecStart=/usr/local/nagios/bin/nagios /usr/local/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg
Then the following:

sudo systemctl enable /etc/systemd/system/nagios.service
sudo systemctl start nagios
sudo systemctl restart nagios
