check_ping doesn't work after Fedora 26 upgrade
Last modified: 2017-11-14 10:43:32 EST
Description of problem:
After working setup of Fedora 25 to Fedora 26 upgrade:
/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_ping -4 -H 192.168.0.1 -w 100,20% -c 500,60% -vv
CRITICAL - You need more args!!!
Could not open pipe:
Looks like PING_COMMAND is not set on compile time correctly, missing ping in build environment???
Please fix & release it ASAP
Tried also to update to latest testing version without success:
dnf --enablerepo updates-testing update nagios\*
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
Confirmed that something is not right with F26 vs F25/EPEL
nagios-plugins-2.2.1-4git.fc26 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 26. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2017-c2e82de3b3
Please test the version above. The problem was that the f26 mockbuild needed extra packages for ping, uptime and ps to be used.
Great, works well well, ready to release! :-)
BTW: Any plans to improve QA in the future (e.g. nagios test server)?
Most of the people using Nagios are on RHEL-6/7 so most of my focus has been on the EPEL branches and making them work as best as possible. The feedback I have gotten on recent Fedora releases has been 2 people (you and one other but there may be a third I am forgetting. The other fedora feedback I got was for EOL releases still being used) so I mostly rely on the Fedora Infrastructure clients to be the test bed. [This also means that bodhi updates never get enough karma to get pushed out without me pushing through.]
My plan will be to make sure that F27 boxes are deployed into Fedora Infrastructure starting around Beta time so I can make sure this doesn't happen again. Beyond that I need assistance from users as this is my spare time job at Red Hat.
nagios-plugins-2.2.1-4git.fc26 has been pushed to the Fedora 26 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Updates_Testing for
instructions on how to install test updates.

You can add me to the informal list of Fedora Nagios users :-).
I have validated the 2.2.1-4git.fc26 RPMS from updates-testing and they work great for me. Thanks for your continued contributions!
nagios-plugins-2.2.1-4git.fc26 has been pushed to the Fedora 26 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
The problem is back on Fedora 27 :(
