check_nrpe doesn't raise a CRITICAL state if /backup isn't accessible
The check should be run as root but doesn't complaint if it is not:
# sudo -u nagios /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_bkctld ls: cannot open directory '/backup/jails': Permission denied OK - Nothing to signalI suggest the following changes:
- add a
set -eso that the script exits with code ≠ 0 if anything goes wrong
- add a portion of code to explicitly check if /backup is mounted (usually not the case after rebooting a server if /backup have to be decrypted manually.
- and of course the check must be run as root
Here is a full patch (ignoring indentation change):

- set -e will be added to entire bkctld script in future release after more testing
- the trouble for checking if /backup if mounted are :
- $JAILDIR and $INCDIR are not neccessary in /backup nor even in the same directory
- /backup is not neccessary a mount point, it can be a simple subdir and can be in /home or any other place
- the check is now necessarily run in root because it was merged into bkctld script which check if runtime user is root
This issue will be fixed in a future release (maybe 2.0), config will indicate a block device for /backup instead of a directory.
With this configuration, bkctld will directly manage mount point, encryption, filesystem and can check all of that.
