[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#360093: distributed configuration file no longer includes local configuration

Package: nagios-nrpe-server
Version: 2.4-1

NRPE server stopped executing checks after upgrading this package with
error messages like "NRPE: Command 'check-disks' not defined".

The reason for this is that the distributed standard configuration file,
/etc/nagios/nrpe.cfg, does not any more include the "local" NRPE
configuration, /etc/nagios/nrpe_local.cfg, where our checks are defined.
This conflicts with the documentation and with the behaviour of the
previous version(s).

I suggest that the standard configuration file should be changed by
adding an include directive like:


at the end to restore the behaviour of the previous version. This remedy
has been tested on our machines and produces the desired result.

Since this appears to be a configuration problem I omit the
kernel/libc/dependency information.
