could you please clearly point to the exact parts of each of the
documentations you are refering to? For now I did found onyl the
documentation provided on nagios.org and the one shiped with
nagios3-common, which is the same.
From my point of view, the developer(s) of nagios just advised using check_nt
in wrong way. check_nt is part of nagios-plugins and not nagios, so it
is 3rd party from their viewpoint. Maybe they find it elegant todo it in this
way, but there may also other opinions. Suggesting the use of the plugin in
any way on nagios.org and in the nagios distribution doesn't postulate the
ultimate way, how a plugin has to be used.
Imagine your ISP dictates you, how to use you computers, just cause you can
use it with his internet connection.

I saw you filled a bug against nagios3-common, that maybe reasonable. But the
problem is upstream, I would say. What else packages are you referencing?
Beside that discussion, if you setup your nagios environment, don't you need
to read documentation (, okay .. you did, but unfortunatly not the best
part :)) and if anything fails with your check(s), don't you need to search
the command definitions and think about, if they make sence for your setup?
I personly prefer to recommand to use additional files
in /etc/nagios-plugins/config/ or /etc/nagios3/conf.d/ for highly customised
Anyways .. did you check the command definitions I suggested you?
Thanks and with kind regards, Jan.
