Description Marcin Mirosław 2009-10-19 14:51:48 UTC
Changing options debug=0 to debug=1 in /etc/nagios/nrpe.conf makes nrpe daemon to change behavior. It's start to refuse connection when /etc/hosts.allow is not readble by nagios user.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_nrpe -H -c check_hda1
DISK CRITICAL - /dev/hda1 is not accessible: Nie ma takiego pliku ani katalogu

localhost nrpe[16077]: warning: cannot open /etc/hosts.allow: Permission denied

2. edit nrpe.conf and set debug=1
3. /etc/init.d/nrpe restart
4. # /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_nrpe -H -c check_hda1
CHECK_NRPE: Error - Could not complete SSL handshake.

localhost nrpe[19945]: Connection from port 21170
localhost nrpe[19945]: Host address is in allowed_hosts
