if you encounter this little beauty:

Error: Could not stat() command file '/usr/local/nagios/var/rw/nagios.cmd'!

try testing your selinux settings

start with: setenforce 0
this will disable for now

  1. It worked.

    Also you might wanna check the .cmd path in cgi.cfg.

  2. It is a nice check but how do you get it working with selinux?

  3. thanks , working

  4. Fantastic – not sure if it was SELINUX=disable did or /etc/sysconfig/selinux and change it to SELINUX=permissive that did the trick.

    I am sure I needed to restart the Nagios Box – and it worked.

  8. Awesome,

  9. thanks, it works for me.

  11. Oh AND editing SELINUX=disable did not work for me, I had to go into /etc/sysconfig/selinux and change it to SELINUX=permissive

  12. Restart nagios after killing selinux
