using send_nsca from SmartOS global zone

If you don't want to install pkgin in the global zone, but you want to use Nagios send_nsca command, this is how I did it.

Inside a zone install the nagios-nsca package.

pkgin in nagios-nsca-2.9.1nb2

From the global zone, cd to the zone zfs and copy these files in a place of your own.

cd /zones/<uuid>

cp opt/local/gcc47/x86_64-sun-solaris2.11/lib/amd64/ /opt/custom/nsca/

cp opt/local/gcc47/x86_64-sun-solaris2.11/lib/amd64/

cp opt/local/lib/

Create a configuration file

vi /opt/custom/nsca/send_nsca.cfg

Now set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable and run the command

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/custom/nsca; echo "host;passive_check;0;All seems to be OK" | /opt/custom/nsca/send_nsca -H nagios.ip -p 5667 -d ";" -c /opt/custom/nsca/send_nsca.cfg
