Cisco UCS Manager Plugin Release 0.9.3 for Nagios - Issues with plugin and autodiscovery

Hi,

I am running Nagios Core 4.0.7 on a Fedora Core test server and have a UCSC-C220-M4 running firmware 2.0(3e) on the CIMC.

I've installed the Nagios UCS Plugin (0.9.3), ImcSdk-0.6.2 and UcsSdk-0.8.3.

Unfortunately whenever I either run the autodiscover (having given the correct IP, credentials and connection type in the config) or use the libexec/plugin, they both fail and report back errors.
Please see below - can anyone offer any suggestions on how to resolve this?

Thanks in advance.

Paul

Hi Paul,

As I understand you are using UCS Nagios plugin to monitor a rack server.

This is the reason why you may be having issues with the plugin and

autodiscovery .

Try using the IMC Nagios plugin which can be found at
