This plugin checks print spooler on window servers for failed jobs via VBS and WMI and kills job or return printer name with failed jobs. (Set killjob Flag to False)
This plugin should be located in $NSCLIENT_HOME/scripts (your nsclient path) called with nrpe via NSclient++ and supports Hostname as Argument (NSclient should be run with a domain user, to support spooler checking over multiple hosts!).

To make it clear:

[NAGIOS] -> check_nrpe -> [HOP HOST with NSCLIENT] -> check_print_spooler -> [PRINT SERVER (this might be the hop host itself)]



Sample commands.cfg:

# Argument 1 should be your hop windows host, your service must stick to host / hostgroup which you want to check
define command {
command_name check_windows_print_spooler
command_line $USER1$/check_nrpe -H $ARG1$ -c check_print_spooler -a $HOSTADDRESS$
}

Or as a "local" check
define command {
command_name check_windows_print_spooler
command_line $USER1$/check_nrpe -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -c check_print_spooler -a "."
}
