Nagios 4 : Add Monitoring Target Host#3
2016/09/15
 
It's possible to monitor Windows servers on the network.
For example, add Windows Server 2012 R2 for monitoring target.
[1]
Download "NSClient++" and upload it on target Windows server.
⇒ http://sourceforge.net/projects/nscplus/
[2] Install "NSClient++". Input Nagios server's hostname or IP address and set any password during installation like follows. The password is used for the connection from Nagios server to Windows server for monitoring.
  After installing, NSClient++ has been started. It's not need to change Windows firewall settings because installer has done it.
[3] Configure Nagios server.
