I am new to nagios and have finished studying the NRPE and CHeck by SSL section of my learning curve. I am now in the part where I am learning monitoring the Windows Server.
I have a nagios Server running over Ubuntu and a WIndows Server 2012 R2.
I installed the Latest NSCLient++ from the nsclient website.
Now As I have test the Variables in the check_nt plugin in the nagios server, I am getting the following error message. Any ideas? or can anyone guide me? Do i need to configure anything else on the Windows Server where the nsclient++ is installed.
sheenlim08@Server1:/$ sudo /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nt -H 192.168.36.153 -p 12489 -v USEDDISKSPACE -s "OtESscnwLIlXNGR0" -l C
NSClient - ERROR: No performance data from command: check_drivesize
sheenlim08@Server1:/$ sudo /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nt -H 192.168.36.153 -p 12489 -v UPTIME -s "OtESscnwLIlXNGR0"
NSClient - ERROR: No performance data from command: check_uptime
I can tell that the port 12489 is open on the windows server from scanning the port using nmap.
sheenlim08@XUbuntu-WKS:~$ nmap server4 -p 12489 -Pn
Starting Nmap 7.40 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2017-09-17 18:24 +08
Nmap scan report for server4 (192.168.36.153)
Host is up (0.0022s latency).
rDNS record for 192.168.36.153: Server4

Do I need to define the commands in the monitored server (Windows Host) in the same way I need to define the commands I can call when checking remote linux servers using NRPE?
