We have installed a MS SQL Server in your department.  I am wondering how I can get Nagios to monitor the MSSQLSERVER service?

Thanks,
Mikie

If you want to monitor the server download and install the nscd windows service, configure it to check windows services, then you can configure you nagios box to query the "service"

Unfortunately I don't have a good example right now, but if you get stuck, please post back and I will help you move forward.

You need to install the NSclient package on the windows server, from there you can do a check to make sure MSSQL is running. That client might enable you to find detailed information about MSSQL as well.

You can now find the plugin called check_mssql.sh in the contrib/ subdirectory of the latest plugin distribution that will check MS SQL servers.

The latest version is avaliable from sourceforge.
