Pandora FMS server doesn’t recognize the Enterprise libraries

I’ve installed the Enterprise version in my current server, but it says I don’t have installed the enterprise version:

“Pandora FMS Server 3.0 Build 091216 Copyright (c) 2004-2009 Artica ST This program is Open Source, licensed under the terms of GPL License version 2. You can download latest versions and documentation at http://www.pandorafms.org [*] Pandora FMS Enterprise module not available. [*] Starting Pandora FMS Data Server. [*] Starting Pandora FMS Network Server  . . .”


Probably you have your Enterprise libraries installed in a different path from your open Source version. To check this, run following command to search where are your Opensource version installed (that depends on every GNU/Linux server version / distribution ):

 find /usr -name "NetworkServer.pm" /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8/PandoraFMS/NetworkServer.pm

So you have all your server libraries installed in /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8/PandoraFMS/ Now, we will search where is installed your Enterprise version:

 find /usr -name "Enterprise.pm" /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.0/PandoraFMS/

Seems you have different versions installed, but which is the correct one?

Perl virtual machine looks for libraries in a very specific place, it doesn’t search for all “known-possible-directories” (will take a lot of time and probably will have a lot of conflict of versions), so by default it search on a very specific places, listed with the command:

perl -V

This return a lot of stuff, BUT at the end, it will report something like:

  /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5


This means that correct place to search for libraries is /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8 and /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.0 is not used.

So all libraries must be placed at /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8.

In this example, will be:

cp /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.0/PandoraFMS/*.pm /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8/PandoraFMS
rm -Rf /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.0/PandoraFMS

  • Another “fast” solution is to delete both directories and reinstall both (Enterprise and Open) from scratch (backing up the configuration files).
