Hey All,

I have recently implemented nagios 2.7 on fedora core 6. I am trying the plugin check_disk_smb. I can run the command manually from the command line like this.

check_disk_smb -H ipaddress -s sharename  -u username -p password

This works fine I get the percentage of disk left. But if I add this command to the commands.cfg file like this

define command{
        command_name    check_disk_smb
        command_line    $USER1$/check_disk_smb -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -s $ARG1$ -u $ARG2$ -p $ARG3$
        }
and to the host file like this

define service{
        use                             local-service         ; Name of service template to use
        host_name                       host.com
        service_description             Disk Space
        check_command      check_disk_smb!sharename!username!password
        }

I get an error everytime either critical error access denied or invalid warning threshold -H
any help is appreciated.

Im sorry I put something wrong above the information I put for the host file is actually in ther services.cfg Nagios automatically pulls the host name from the hosts.cfg. The correct host name is in the hosts file but I don't believe it has to be in the services.cfg file.

when I start out with $ARG0$ the process just skips over it and goes straight to $ARG1$

i thinks is in this way

# 'check_disk_smb' command definition
define command{
   command_name   check_disk_smb
   command_line   $USER1$/check_disk_smb -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -s $ARG1$ -u $ARG2$ -p $ARG3$ -w $ARG4$ -c $ARG5$
   }


# Service definition
define service{
   use            generic-service      ; Name of service template to use
   host_name         <Hostname>
   service_description     SMB_Disk
   max_check_attempts      3
   normal_check_interval      15
   retry_check_interval    1
   process_perf_data    1
   contact_groups       xxx
   servicegroups        xxx
   check_command        check_disk_smb!<sharename>!<user>!<password>!<warning>!<critical>
   }

I tried the above and I get an  Access Denied error. I know the share, username and password are correct. Because if I run the above manually it works fine. If there some kind of weird thing with nagios that it isn't reading the information right?

just a question... you have a user nagios? you run this command with the user nagios or the user root? please run the command with the user nagios and check if connect anyway

Good idea. I tried to swtich users to nagios and I get this. I added the user and group before I installed I don't know why this would happen.

su nagios
