How to configure the Nsure Audit Platform Agent on NetWare


No events are getting logged

Local cache file growing to be very large

Servername logged as the originator for eDirectory events


After installing the Platform Agent (PA), some configuration steps are required to ensure that events are being sent to the logging server, and configure which events need to be logged.

The first step to configuring the Platform Agent on NetWare is to modify the logevent.cfg located in SYS:\ETC. The minimum configuration required here is to set the LOGHOST address. If the Platform Agent is not on the same server as the Secure Logging Server (SLS), this address should be the IP address (DNS NAMES DO NOT WORK) of the SLS. It might also be desirable to configure the LogReconnectInterval setting. By default this is 10 minutes. Once configured, the PA will try to reconnect to the SLS at the interval specified should the connection to the SLS be broken.

The second step to configuring the PA on NetWare, is to configure the eDirectory, Filesystem, and Netware OS instrumentation. This is done at the NCP server object in iManager. From the eDirectory Administration task list, select Modify Object. Browse for server object. This is the NCP server object, in the tree, not the Secure Logging Server object in the Logging Services container. Click on the Nsure Audit tab. Below the tab, there will links to the individual components, eDirectory, NetWare, and Filesystem. Checking items in these component lists determines which events will be sent to the SLS. It is necessary to configure each instrumentation, or no events will be logged. The default in most cases is "log nothing".
