Windows-Plugin: checks the condition of Windows Active Directory server (Health Check)
check_ad is a Windows plugin for Nagios which checks the condition of Windows Active Directory server (Health Check).
Windows Server 2008 or newer with installed AD part.
Usually the plugin runs without parameter.
It checks the following AD domains: services, replications, advertising, fsmocheck, ridmanager, machineaccount, dfsevent.
It can be used on German and English Server OS.
Preferably the plugin is copied into the script directory where you will store your checks under Windows
When using NSClient ++ an entry in NSC.INI similar to this is generated:
... [/modules] NRPEServer=enabled CheckExternalScripts=enabled [/settings/NRPE/server] allow arguments=true [/settings/external scripts/scripts] check_ad=scripts\check_ad.exe ...
Check AD, if everything is all right: C:> check_ad.exe
OK - services: OK. replications: OK. advertising: OK. fsmocheck: OK. ridmanager: 1. machineaccount: OK.
1.1 – Support for german (and english) Server OS
