Description markhamb 2018-02-16 15:56:53 UTC
On a new install, the zabbix 3.4.5 package is filling logs up with:

zabbix_server[44584]: At least one of '/usr/sbin/fping', '/usr/sbin/fping6' must exist. Both are missing in the system.

The fping package was previously installed, but it puts the binaries in the standard FreeBSD location: /usr/local/sbin/.

I have used the obvious work-around:

ln -s /usr/local/sbin/fping /usr/sbin/fping
Comment 1 pg 2018-02-20 11:58:58 UTC
Please find into zabbix_server.conf.sample the following parameters:

$ grep fping /usr/local/etc/zabbix34/zabbix_server.conf.sample
#       Location of fping.
#       Make sure that fping binary has root ownership and SUID flag set.
# FpingLocation=/usr/local/sbin/fping
#       Location of fping6.
#       Make sure that fping6 binary has root ownership and SUID flag set.
#       Make empty if your fping utility is capable to process IPv6 addresses.
# Fping6Location=/usr/local/sbin/fping6

Humm, the ports are patching fping location only in the config file, so the default location is wrong.

The attached patch fixes this.
