Same problem as reported by danslarge. Seems to be a problem with wmi/wbem, when trying to collect lic info.

Would be nice if working again.

Any ideas?
I've install ActivePerl and copied the script but getting this:

C:\Program Files\NSClient++\scripts>check_licenseserver.pl
no citrix licenses found. please check if Citrix License WMI Service is running
at C:\Program Files\NSClient++\scripts\check_licenseserver.pl line 56.

I've verified this service is started. Any ideas?

I set it up as NRPE check on a windows server in my NagiosXI setup. I was able to modify the script so that performance graph of license usage is created.

0. requires nsclient++ with NRPE enabled and running on windows box
1. install activeperl on windows box
2. put check_licenseserver.pl in the nsclient "scripts" folder
3. add script to nsclient.ini
[/settings/external scripts/scripts]
check_licenseserver=c:\perl64\bin\perl.exe scripts\check_licenseserver.pl
4. test running check_licenseserver with 'nrpe test' on windows host, check_nrpe on linux host
5. use wizard to add NRPE check for 'check_licenseserver'
6. edit check_licenseserver.pl on the lines where it prints the output, insert:
| license=$license_used
before the \n (newline) in the print statement to add the performance data to the output.
7. performance data is noticed and processed by nagios and graph is generated.

Use check_nrpe
Install perl on your citrix license server, then modify the nsc.ini and create a nagios service

works excellent!

Is there any chance that you can describe how i can set up this passive check?
How to initiate it from the Citrix server and where to put the pearl script and how to set up the passive check and also get a graph of the statistics in number of used licenses?
