|Title:||Nagios shuts down with errors about not being able to open the external command file for reading|
|Submitted By:||Ethan Galstad |
Nagios shuts down with an error message in the log file indicating that it could not create the external command file (usually /usr/local/nagios/var/rw/nagios.cmd).
Make sure you have created the directory for holding the external command file with the proper permissions. Directions for creating the directory and assigning proper user and group permissions can be found in the documentation.
