Package: nagios3-doc
Version: 3.0.6-3
Severity: normal

The instructions contained in /usr/share/nagios3/htdocs/docs/monitoring-windows.html cause an error message in the web interface.  Please see 
Debian Bug #528267 for a full description of the problem.  The section that reads:

define service{
        use                     generic-service
        host_name                       winserver
        service_description     NSClient++ Version
        check_command           check_nt!CLIENTVERSION

causes problems because of the ++ after the NSClient.  Removing the ++ fixes the problem:

define service{
        use                     generic-service
        host_name                       winserver
        service_description     NSClient Version
        check_command           check_nt!CLIENTVERSION

However, we may want to change it in some other way so that we still indicate that we are using NSClient++.

It appears that this documentation is copied from http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/monitoring-windows.html so we should probably coordinate 
the change with the manager of the upstream documentation.
