Error while setting up Ping

Jump to solution
I am trying to get the Ping function to work but keep getting the following error:

Invalid configuration: Error reported by Agent @ XXX.XX.X.XXX:2144: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: File '\sbin\ping' does not exist

(X's subsitute for actual address)

Does anyone know why this is happening?

Thanks,
Sam

As you noted, you're deploying on Windows, so the file "/sbin/ping" will not exist. You have to find out where your ping.exe lives on Windows and insert that into your config properties instead.

FWIW, I have to change that as well, because Ubuntu Linux has ping in another location - /bin/ping

For Windows, it should be something along the lines of c:\windows\system32\ping.exe - but it might depend on your particular version.

What type of platform are you deploying on? I believe the ping
command line is statically specified by the plugin. You could either
create a symlink to it, or modify the plugin.
