yum install centreon-nrpe3-plugin
  1. On the Centreon Web interface, install the Windows NRPE 0.5 Centreon Plugin Pack on the Configuration > Plugin Packs page.

Host configuration

  • Log into Centreon and add a new Host through "Configuration > Hosts".
  • Fill the Name, Alias & IP Address/DNS fields according to your Windows server settings.
  • Select the OS-Windows-NSClient-05-NRPE-custom template to apply to the Host.
