Installing NRPE on Red hat 6

Red Hat 6 does not natively support NRPE/Nagios with the default package manager. Luckily, DAG can save the day again, just as with Red Hat 5 🙂

Simply add the mirror spesified in the link above to your server and you get the ability to add the NRPE or other Nagios packages without too much hazzle.

In my case with a 64bit system, the way to get NRPE installed was as simple as this:

rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el6/en/x86_64/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

yum install nagios-nrpe
