I have a nagios server running on CentOS. Running perfectly except i am trying to implement check_http -H <someipaddress> -S -u <some url> -p <someport> and this works via command line, but when i put it into a define service {} method in the cfg file, it doesnt validate.

can you post the section of the config where you define the service?

you could not use linux executables or scripts directly in a service definition.

first you have do define a "command" for nagios like that:

# 'check_http' command definition
define command{
    command_name    check_http
    command_line    $USER1$/check_http -I $HOSTADDRESS$ $ARG1$
}

then you could use that "command"  (and not the executable/script) in your service definition.
