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 Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

This script verifies the windows service with "net rpc" command and without agent on windows machine
A simple script for activating monitor on windows services without agent on remote machine.

Nagios check command definition is:

define command{
command_name check_winservice_rpc
command_line $USER1$/ -S $ARG1$ -M $HOSTADDRESS$ -U $ARG2$ -P $ARG3$ $ARG4$

The scritp required this argoments where the service name is not the display name (for example: use "lanmanserver" for check "Server Service")

-M --> Windows Machine Name or IP Address
-W --> workgroup or domain (default is WORKGROUP)
-U --> User Windows Machine
-P --> Password Windows Machine
-S --> Windows Service Name

I thing it's good solution when you have to check many machines and you can't install the agent or you don't have time to install it!
