NAGIOS - Return code of 127 is out of bounds - plugin may be missing


I did some Google searching and found the below to try:

Return code of 127 is out of bounds - plugin may be missing

Read around that i need to install the snmp plugin (it was missing fromn my libexec folder)

So run apt-get or yum install nagios-plugins

Then run in the nagios plugins directory

./configure --with-nagios-user=nagios --with-nagios-group=nagios


make install


I hate to say this did not work for me. I ran into this issue when updating my CentOS server, before everything was fine. What i had to do, i do prefer terminal over GUI, is open the System>Administration>Add/Remote Software, search for NAGIOS and re-install all the plugins. After this i started getting RECOVERY emails and alerts. Please rate this article if either solution works for you. Please email me if you have the solution for reinstalling the plugins via terminal only I did try yum install or apt-get install nagios-plugins and that did not work either.
