Package: nagios-plugins
Version: 1.4.12-5
Severity: normal

The configuration for heck_httpname  misses a '$' at the end of $HOSTNAME, this way it will never be replaced by the host name and the check will fail
Original config:
        command_line    /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_http -H '$HOSTNAME' -I '$HOSTADDRESS$'

The fixed one is:
        command_line    /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_http -H '$HOSTNAME$' -I '$HOSTADDRESS$'
