NRPE: Installing the init script

I followed the instruction from this guide.

There is a line sudo make install-xinetd which is not suitable for Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS, the directory /etc/xinet.d is in RedHat/Centos but in Ubuntu the equivalent is /etc/init.d/

The below steps are from this guide.

cyruslab@Nachos:~/download/nrpe-2.13$ sudo cp init-script.debian /etc/init.d/nrpe
cyruslab@Nachos:~/download/nrpe-2.13$ sudo chmod 700 /etc/init.d/nrpe
cyruslab@Nachos:~/download/nrpe-2.13$ sudo update-rc.d nrpe defaults
update-rc.d: warning: /etc/init.d/nrpe missing LSB information
update-rc.d: see <>
