None of the network modules initialize
I recently installed Pandora FMS and for the most part it is working quite nicely. The master server is on Ubuntu 10.04.1 and the agents are on Windows XP and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5.

I have also agent running in the monitoring machine to check if the other agents are alive via ICMP echoing. I set these alive checks via web console already a while back, but they are still in 'Not init' state. Same thing with one other Red Hat's network module, it's not initializing at all.

To my knowledge, the master server is running network server as it is shown with green status in the tactical view - however with 0% load.

What could I try to get the pings & latency checks working?

Thank you in advance!

Hi tiainpa,

Have you tried to reset pandora server? If it not works, then you should try doing it from the server, in the terminal to be sure that the monitorized machine is really accesible from pandora server.

Be sure too that the machines that doesn't report, has its firewall disable.

Pandora server reset was one of the first things I tried, but it doesn't help.

I logged in to the machines which should do the ping testing with network modules in Pandora, and they can send and receive ping packets just fine against the tested machines.

I cannot disable any firewalls because of the company policy, but I don't see it would make any difference.

BTW, this is the only error I see in the pandora_server.error:
Use of uninitialized value in string ne at /usr/lib/perl5/PandoraFMS/ line 793.
Hi tiainpa,

It seems to be an error in the file. I'm going to find the what is the problem and I'll notice you.


Can you try replacing your by this one? Before that, search where is this file and then make a backup of your current, rename it for example:

# find / -name
# mv

Put the file attached in the same path before and test it.


Thanks, but the file attached seems to be empty?

Sorry tiainpa,

I attached the file again.

Hi Luis,

Thanks, now there was something in the file Smile

However, now the Pandora server doesn't start at all, here's the info it prints out:
Subroutine pandora_ping redefined at /usr/lib/perl5/PandoraFMS/ line 1355.

There's nothing in the server.log and server.error files.

Ok tiainpa,

Then, restore your backup and attached it here to test it, please.

Here you go, my original file attached.
