If NRPE cannot execute the checkcommand that implies that the nagios 
user doesn't have the required permissions.

The given checkcommand is not part of the default configuration:

  /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_disk -w 20% -c 10% -p /var/tmp/mysql

Which suggests that this is a configuration issue to be resolved by the 
administrator of the system. (e.g use sudo to execute the plugin as a 
users with the required permissions).

Kind Regards,
