DHCP log file name

Jump to solution

Hi,

is there any support (or any workaround ) for a windows dhcp server other than english, since some of my dhcp log files are named like DhcpSrvLog-Pzt.log , DhcpSrvLog-Sal.log the parser is unable to find the log file.

thanks in advance ....

Not sure if this works but you can create a hardlink with the English name using fsutil:

fsutil hardlink create <LinkName> <SourceFile>

In your case it would be:

fsutil hardlink create DhcpSrvLog-Mon.Log DhcpSrvLog-Pzt.Log

or

fsutil hardlink create DhcpSrvLog-Tue.Log DhcpSrvLog-Sal.Log

HTH,

Duc

on Windows you can do the trick with fsutil, hardlink the files with different names like

fstutil hardlink create c:\dhcp2ndpath\dhcpMonday.log c:\dhcppath\dhcpPzt.log

of course this may work if the log structure is the same.

I am also having the same problem.

I tried to rename the log files or create a hardlink but these solutions do not solve the issue.

I think that the log file structure is the same, but to verify it, could somebody upload an english dhcp log file?

I opened a Service Request on April but I am still waiting for a solution.

Thank you.

Below is a picture that may help. Also, by default the connector reads the DHCP file from the bottom. This is if you are reading the DHCP file from a live server.

Now if you are reading DHCP files pulled off a DHCP that are not live, then you you have to change the "agent.properties" file to read the DHCP file from top to bottom.

Below is an engish version of how the setup looks to read files.

Dear Murat,

I know this is a relatively old post.  However, the dhcp connector parser does not have the ability to read log files in other languages asides English naming convention, i.e. Mon, Tue, Wed....

Please, open a ticket with the Tech Support team so a feature request can be opened with the Product Management and Development teams.

Regards,

Gbenga.

Thank you Thomas.

The configuration is ok, but I need to check the log file content.

Could you upload an screenshot of the content of a DHCP log file?

Thanks,

Óscar.

Hallo, i have nearly the same problem. I have DCHP Logs in german
but the DCHP Connector (from a Connector Appliance) only get RAW Events.   I have
not a result. Works it if i rename the the logfiles in Mon Thu ….??? I think
the Problem is the Date / Time Format!!!????

Best regards

It may be easier to install a SmartConnector on the DHCP server. Instead of using a CONAPP to receive those events.
