So we are using Nagios to monitor our Windows Server environment for system resources, as well as services. We have several servers that have 3rd party services installed that contain spaces in the service name such as "ColdFusion 8 .NET Service". Once Nagios runs the check we get the following "Warning" Error.
ColdFusion : Unknown
2nd issue - Services with special characters such as "$" hold up the entire Nagios program and we are unable to even start Nagios when these characters are in the configuration.
