This article describes how an Adaptec-Raid-Controller for Windows with Icinga/Nagios Adaptec RAID Monitoring Plugin check_adaptec_raid can be monitored. In the following example a 64bit Windows Server 2012 is used, but the instructions can be applied analogously to other versions of Windows.

Required Software

The following software components are required on the Windows system:

Installation Steps

NRPE-Configuration

After the installation steps described above have been completed, add the following lines to the C:\Program Files\NSClient++\nsclient.ini:

; Section for NRPE (NRPEServer.dll) (check_nrpe) protocol options.
[/settings/NRPE/server]

; COMMAND ARGUMENT PROCESSING - This option determines whether or not we will allow clients to specify arguments to commands that are executed.
allow arguments = true

; Section for external scripts configuration options (CheckExternalScripts).
[/settings/external scripts]

; COMMAND ARGUMENT PROCESSING - This option determines whether or not we will allow clients to specify arguments to commands that are executed.
allow arguments = true

[/settings/external scripts/scripts]
check_adaptec_raid=C:\\strawberry\\perl\\bin\\perl.exe C:\\Programme\\Adaptec\\check_adaptec_raid -C 1 -p C:\\Programme\\Adaptec\\arcconf.exe

The path of /settings/external scripts/scripts are similar to those at check_adaptec_raid and arcconf.exe.

Testing by the Icinga-Server

The plugin check_nrpe calls on Windows-Server check_adaptec_raid for NRPE:

:~$ /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_nrpe -H 10.1.102.142 -c check_adaptec_raid
AACRAID CRITICAL (Ctrl #1): [Ctrl. temp. critical, Log. device failed/degraded, Log. device critical, 1 log. device(s) failed]
