This is a check script which runs ndsrepair on an OES (linux) server and alerts if the time is out of sync from eDirectory’s point of view on any contactable servers. It also outputs a list of any servers that couldn’t be contacted.

    This is probably obvious to everyone else except linux-challenged old blokes like me, but to get the script to execute correctly when called remotely by nrpe you need to add nagios to sudoers. I added the line

    nagios ALL= NOPASSWD: /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_edir_time

    and then the script ran perfectly. It’s great!

    I guess a similar script could be used to check edir sync as well.
