yes, it appears to be working, the drop down box has a list. I just don’t know how to configure it to monitor a service on a windows server. Lets say for whatever reason I wanted to monitor the service ‘windows update’ on server ‘MyServer2012R2’ and I want an alert if that service goes down.
Which option do I choose in LibreNMS drop down box? What is the syntax?
Do I need anything additional such as a specific plugin from the nagios exchange? Do I need to have Check_MK installed on ‘MyServer2012r2’?
“Out of the box” the nagios plugins are installed on the librenms server and only can run remote checks.
If you want to monitor a windows service you need to
-either have a proxy at a windows box and remote service checks enabled (AD domain needed afaik)
-or have another tool installed on the target box. This might be the check_mk agent, but I think that windows part of it has not been worked on in a while so not sure its actually still working on whatever you have .
Above is about as far as I have gotten before it lost priority, so can’t help with the next step, sorry.
Yea, I am trying to check the Up/Down status of a service on a windows server. That server is on the domain in the same environment but is not the server running LibreNMS. Man… So close and yet so far, LibreNMS is awesome just trying to figure out this last piece as I have a few critical services that I have to monitor.
I installed the Check_MK client on the server, but I don’t know the syntax or even if the syntax exists to tell LibreNMS to check the status of that service. Add Service - Check Up/Down on service ‘windows update’ on 10.8.8.8 - something like that.
So basically, the Check_MK agent runs whatever Nagios script you want locally.
Then, if you put this script in your LibreNMS server’s Nagios plugins directory you should get a new MPRE service option. Use parameter -a [name] with the name you specified in the MPRE config and if should poll the data through the agent.
