    Hi, just found this site – hope I can get some help.
    I’m kind of new to nagios and have got up an running. I recently installed NSclient++ on my test Win2008 Server R2. I’ve got the service up and running – as far as I can tell have the NSC.ini file configured.

    port=12489 — Uncommented

    password=secret-password — Uncommented

    password=’somepasswd’ — Password matched on my commands.cfg on the nagios server

    But when I run a “check_nt” command, I get an error about password being invalid.

    
    /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nt -H 'Host IP' -s 'somepasswd' -p 12489 -v CPULOAD -w 80 -c 90 -l 5,80,90,10,80,90
    NSClient - ERROR: Invalid password
    

    Here is my commnads.cfg

    
    # 'check_nt' command definition
    define command{
            command_name    check_nt
            command_line    $USER1$/check_nt -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -p 12489 -s 'somepasswd' -v $ARG1$ $ARG2$
            }
    

    I’ve also tried using NRPE to check.

    /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nrpe -H 'host ip' -c CheckCPU -a warn=80 crit=90 time=20m time=10s time=4
    CHECK_NRPE: Received 0 bytes from daemon.  Check the remote server logs for error messages

    From nsclient.log

    2011-05-05 10:43:51: error:modules\NRPEListener\NRPEListener.cpp:393: Request contained arguments (not currently allowed, check the allow_arguments option).
    2011-05-05 10:43:51: error:modules\NRPEListener\NRPEListener.cpp:365: NRPEException: Request contained arguments (not currently allowed, check the allow_arguments option).

    Where would I configure this on the INI file to set to ‘allow’?
