Help Support Ethan

A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting ethangalstad.me/nagios. Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

- Ethan

This plugin checks the status of Arcserve backup jobs and reports if any have failed.
This parses the output from the ca_qmgr tool.

Since NCPA runs as SYSTEM, permission must be granted to SYSTEM to access the arcserve tool.
I create an arcserve local user that is an Arcserve Administrator:
ca_auth -user add nagiosxi long_password_here -assignrole 8

Then add SYSTEM as an equivalent:
ca_auth -equiv add "NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM" hostname_here nagiosxi

Info about equivalence:
https://documentation.arcserve.com/Arcserve-Backup/Available/R17/ENU/Bookshelf_Files/HTML/cmndline/index.htm?toc.htm?cl_ca_auth_equiv_args.htm

Only tested on Nagios XI but should work on others.
