Windows-Plugin: checks the condition of DNS supported by Active Directory systems
check_windows_dns is a Windows plugin for Nagios which checks the condition of DNS supported by Active Directory systems. The plugin detects the condition of DNS and shows errors, if there are disturbances.
Usually you run the plugin without any more details:
For debugging purposes, it may also be called with a more detailed output option (this mode is not suitable for continuous operation, but for testing purposes only).
C:> check_windows_dns.exe debug
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_windows_dns=scripts\check_windows_dns.exe ...
Checking DNS Controller, if everything is alright:
DNS OK: dcdiag found no errors in DNS config.
