I'm a novice with linux having only played around with it on my home computer, however for my apprenticeship they have asked me to setup Nagios on a Linux server - I've gotten the LAMP server up and running (Ubuntu 12.10) and have got cacti up and running however Nagios is causing my head to hurt.
Nagios is up and running and can be accessed remotely using the localhosts IP address. First off we had authentifcation issues after logging into the account - i'm not sure if the issue i'm having now is a remnant of the prior issue i just mentioned. (Apologises for rambling)
I have added a switch which pings fine with Nagios (I think it does at least), however I tried to monitor ports via SNMP and have come up with this error
I've installed the plugins and checked that they are where they should be and they seem to be though perhaps i've installed them incorrectly - I've reinstalled them since i installed it the first time following instructions.
This is probably a simple fix staring me in the face!
Let me know if there is anything that i need to provide (and how to provide it if possible)
Any help would be much apprecitated.
(Apologises if you have seen this question before)
As I recall with the nagios package on ubuntu the binary for querying SNMP isn't where it is expected to be. You need to find it and then either add it to the path OR alter the commands config file to point explicitly to it OR copy the binary into the Nagios bin directory.
