Nagios XI - Problems with $ Signs in the Check Command

Problem Description

Certain services in Microsoft Windows use special characters in the service name like MSSQLFDLauncher$UWCX01. This causes problems with Nagios as it thinks the $ is part of a variable.

 

 

Resolving The Problem

Using NCPA

Your service definition will need two $$ signs.

MSSQLFDLauncher$$UWCX01

 

 

Save and Apply Configuration.

Note: The Test Check Command button will not work due to these special characters.

 

 

 

Using NSClient++

Your service definition will need a backslash \ and two $$ signs.

MSSQLFDLauncher\$$UWCX01

 

 

Save and Apply Configuration.

Note: The Test Check Command button will not work due to these special characters.
