Hey All,

I and Gian are colleagues and Thanks  for the replies.

Although I think it's not a secure way, We had already granted sudo 
permissions for zabbix user but the same error message was returned.

I've done this way now:

in crontab, I scheduled to run the command and then redirect the result 
for a file in /tmp.
Then the zabbix daemon get the result in this file.

Its working fine, but I think its not the best way yet. But the zabbix 
user can only read the file, turning into more secure.
