Can you send up the nrpe.cfg and and other .cfg files included in it


Hi Scott,
Recently I further install the NRPE plugin by root user in one of our nagios monitoring server, For installation I used below step ---
1. create 'nrpe' folder under /tmp
2. execute "yum install -y gcc glibc glibc-common openssl openssl-devel perl wget" command from /tmp/nrpe
3. Download plugin using "wget --no-check-certificate -O nrpe.tar.gz https://github.com/NagiosEnterprises/nr ... 2.1.tar.gz" and unzip under "/tmp/nrpe/nrpe-321"
4. Execute below commands
cd /tmp/nrpe/nrpe-321
./configure
make check_nrpe
make install-plugin


After that i tried to find 'nrpe.cfg' under "/usr/local/nagios/" directory, including all sub-directory under that however I could not find that file.

After that I tried below command however success message not came, below is the command & output of the same ---
./check_nrpe -H test.com -c check_disk -a '-w 20% -c 10% -p /var'

connect to address xx.yyy.zzz.*** port 5666: No route to host
connect to host test.com port 5666: No route to host


I have below query ---
i) under which directory nrpe.cfg file should exists after installation ?
ii) Is it required that I have to install Nagios & NRPE pluggin in each of the server for which I want to check the disk space / CPU & memory ??
iii) where I have to update IP address for allowed IP List ?
iV) How can i check that NRPE plugin is successfully installed and running ?

Appreciate all your extended help.

/usr/local/nagios/etc/nrpe.cfg but only only if you run make all you didn't make nrpe, just check_nrpe

Yes, it is required you install nrpe and the plugins you need.

debdutta wrote:iii) where I have to update IP address for allowed IP List ?

/usr/local/nagios/etc/nrpe.cfg
Code: Select all
allowed_hosts=


debdutta wrote:iV) How can i check that NRPE plugin is successfully installed and running ?

your test above looks good provided you have a check_disk command specified in the nrpe.cfg on test.com and also have your nagios servers IP in the allowed_hosts of that file

Hi Scott,
As per your suggestion (
"/usr/local/nagios/etc/nrpe.cfg but only only if you run make all you didn't make nrpe, just check_nrpe"
), reloaded the nrpe_plugin using below command, however still I could not find the nrpe.cfg file for edit --
./configure
make all
make install-plugin


I checked, Under /usr/local/nagios/etc, I have below 3 .cfg files
cgi.cfg nagios.cfg resource.cfg

Under /usr/local/nagios directory I have below 19 .cfg files ----
./etc/cgi.cfg
./etc/bncom/objects/nyhosts/QA2Hosts.cfg
./etc/bncom/objects/bnconfigs/bnhostgroups.cfg
./etc/bncom/objects/bnconfigs/bncontacts.cfg
./etc/bncom/objects/bnconfigs/bnservices.cfg
./etc/bncom/objects/bnconfigs/bntimeperiods.cfg
./etc/bncom/objects/bnconfigs/bncommands.cfg
./etc/bncom/objects/bnconfigs/bntemplates.cfg
./etc/bncom/objects/urlchecks/QA2HostChecks.cfg
./etc/objects/commands.cfg
./etc/objects/windows.cfg
./etc/objects/contacts.cfg
./etc/objects/timeperiods.cfg
./etc/objects/printer.cfg
./etc/objects/localhost.cfg
./etc/objects/templates.cfg
./etc/objects/switch.cfg
./etc/resource.cfg
./etc/nagios.cfg


Let me know where I am missing .

Appreciate all your extended help.

You need to go through all the steps in the doc for your particular OS, it appears you are picking and choosing a few
