In the last few weeks I reworked our internal Nagios configuration and added a few checks to some of our internal servers. Since we do not have a dedicated SAN for our environment, we are using iSCSI as a low-cost storage solution. However, the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator implementation sometimes has trouble connecting to the iSCSI target. As a result, we had to monitor the iSCSI Initiator.
So here is our implementation of check_iscsi for the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator. It uses the iscsicli utility provided together with the iSCSI Initiator and runs on the remote server. To use it, place the following batch file in the
scripts/ folder of your NSClient++ installation.
