Monitoring Windows Server with NSCA / Nagios 3.0.
Posted on 2008-09-30
I try to find a free solution for monitoring multiple servers at multiples customers sites. I installed Nagios and I want to use NSCA passive client to upload the result on a centralized server. I want to create a groups per customer to monitor each servers.
This is my current setup : OpenSuse Linux 11.0 Fully patched, Firewall Off,
Nagios 3.0.1 installed, module NSCA installed, I can telnet the port 5667 and everything seems fine.
On a Windows XP and a Windows 2003 I installed NC_NET client I follow all the instructions in the config files. ** I also try NSCLient++ same issue **
My main problem is the Nagios Server doesn't seems to receive the information from the workstation.... note : I disable the active check for each station.
The machines even XP or 2003 the service (FreeSpace and ClientVersion) are always in a pending states in the Nagios interface.. they are waiting...
I can ping both ways, I can telnet the port NSCA
Does someone have a clue or an How to guide to deploy NSCA in Windows successfully ?
Does someone have another free solution I can implement more simple to do the same passive monitoring job ?
