Description of problem:
There is a syntax error in the /etc/rc.d/init.d/nagios init script for
the latest update of Nagios in EPEL-6:
# service nagios status
/etc/init.d/nagios: line 153: syntax error near unexpected token `}'
/etc/init.d/nagios: line 153: `}'
This is in the 'printstatus_nagios' function, which looks like
if status_nagios; then # <-- Spurious line
status_nagios $1 $2
if [ $RETVAL = 0 ]; then
echo "nagios (pid $NagiosPID) is running..."
echo "nagios is not running"
The first line in the body ('if status_nagios; then'; I have marked it
with an arrow above) shouldn't be there. If I comment it out, the init
script works as it should.
This would cause Nagios to not start after a reboot.
