Question


Why doesn't my configured check work if i have a "!" in my password or snmp community?

Answer


Since "!" is used as a separator in "check_command_args" in op5 Monitor, you will need to escape the sign "!" with a "\" (backslash) to make op5 Monitor interper the character as input and not a separator.

Example

check_command_args: username!passw0r\!d!warning!critical
