Nagios NRPE agent on IA64 VMS 8.31h1

I see where people have gotten this working. I compiled the EXE's myself using the BUILD.COM file provided with Kit 2.0B. I am having the following issue:

$ check_nrpe "-H" 127.0.0.1 "-c" check_test
CHECK_NRPE: Error - Could not complete SSL handshake.
%NONAME-E-NOMSG, Message number 00000002

When I try to use nossl (-n) I get this message:

$ check_nrpe "-H" 127.0.0.1 -n
CHECK_NRPE: Received 0 bytes from daemon. Check the remote server logs for error messages.

My config is as follows:

$ ty nrpe.cfg
#############################################################################
# Sample NRPE Config File
# Written by: Ethan Galstad (nagios@nagios.org)
#
# Last Modified: 12-30-2002
#
# NOTES:
# This is a sample configuration file for the NRPE daemon. It needs to be
# located on the remote host that is running the NRPE daemon, not the host
# from which the check_nrpe client is being executed.
#############################################################################



# PORT NUMBER
# Port number we should wait for connections on.
# NOTE: This must be a non-priviledged port (i.e. > 1024).
# NOTE: This option is ignored if NRPE is running under either inetd or xinetd

server_port=5666



# SERVER ADDRESS
# Address that nrpe should bind to in case there are more than one interface
# and you do not want nrpe to bind on all interfaces.
# NOTE: This option is ignored if NRPE is running under either inetd or xinetd

#server_address=10.0.0.1



# ALLOWED HOST ADDRESSES
# This is a comma-delimited list of IP address of hosts that are allowed
# to talk to the NRPE daemon.
#
# NOTE: The daemon only does rudimentary checking of the client's IP
# address. I would highly recommend adding entries in your
# /etc/hosts.allow file to allow only the specified host to connect
# to the port you are running this daemon on.
#
# NOTE: This option is ignored if NRPE is running under either inetd or xinetd

#allowed_hosts=127.0.0.1

# DEBUGGING OPTION
# This option determines whether or not debugging messages are logged to the
# syslog facility.
# Values: 0=debugging off, 1=debugging on

debug=1



# COMMAND TIMEOUT
# This specifies the maximum number of seconds that the NRPE daemon will
# allow plugins to finish executing before killing them off.

command_timeout=60

dont_blame_nrpe=1

# COMMAND DEFINITIONS
# Command definitions that this daemon will run. Definitions
# are in the following format:
#
# command[]=
#
# When the daemon receives a request to return the results of
# it will execute the command specified by the argument.
#
# Unlike Nagios, the command line cannot contain macros - it must be
# typed exactly as it should be executed.
#
# Note: Any plugins that are used in the command lines must reside
# on the machine that this daemon is running on!
# Note that you will have to modify the definitions below
# to match the argument format the plugins expect. Remember, these are
# examples only!

# VMS Specif:
# Note the use of the "@" for the DCL procedures. This are executed
# by the user running the auxiliary server. You may need to check the
# privileges of the account in sysuaf and maybe the quotas.
# All this plug-ins are provided in the scripts directory.
# $ symbol is for parameters. So be sure to use double $ ($$) for logical
# names, device names and directories.

Google for "CHECK_NRPE: Error - Could not complete SSL handshake." finds various topics that appear potentially relevant.

Here's the Nagios FAQ, with some references:

and here:

And here are some potentially relevant set-up steps for Nagios NRPE on VMS:

And for giggles, I might well test the addresses for allowed_hosts and server_address within the config.

Re: Nagios NRPE agent on IA64 VMS 8.31h1

This is going to take some debugging, presuming somebody hasn't already resolved and ported this code.

As for the specific error in the logs, here is an article describing how to debug an access violation (ACCVIO) error:

http://labs.hoffmanlabs.com/node/800

Also look to shut off SSL within the source build, given the references to SSL in the ACCVIO traceback, and given the HP SSL code has itself been somewhat of a moving target recently. (That may not fix this, but it's worth a try.)

The IP port value shown in the dump is unexpected.

The C compiler version looks slightly dodgy, too; V7.3 would be expected.

Could well be collateral from another corruption, but that's going to need some debugging to determine that.

Hi Brent,

one of our customers who is using Nagios as well, who noticed the difference in behaviour between Alpha and Itanium has an escalation running against SSL. I'm not in the office at present, so I can't give you details of the call. As soon as I have more infos I'll post this.

Re: Nagios NRPE agent on IA64 VMS 8.31h1

There's an application error (corrupt pointer, uninitialized pointer, logic bug) in, near or somewhere upstream from image NRPE_AUX module CUSTOM routine syslog circa line 1866.

Re: Nagios NRPE agent on IA64 VMS 8.31h1

Brent,

the case number is 4621089462.

There is a provisonal patch that has been produced:

tcpip$ssh_sshd2.exe
"V5.7-ECO1B"
21-OCT-2010 13:39:34.96

I don't know as yet whether this has resolved the customer's issue.

I'll update this as soon as we have had feedback.

Re: Nagios NRPE agent on IA64 VMS 8.31h1

It's hard to see (at least for me) how a new sshd is going to solve an SSL problem.
