Why not just send the output to the server with the xymon command?

So, when i run the script with xymon, show the error:

ERROR: you must be root

What I generally do in these cases is run the command from root's cron and capture the output in a file that's readable by the Xymon user.  Like so:

*/5 * * * * /sbin/dmraid -r >/tmp/dmraid.out && chgrp xymon /tmp/dmraid.out && chmod 644 /tmp/dmraid.out

Then in the script, in place of "dmraid -r" you just do "cat /tmp/dmraid.out".
