How to create Storage Group?

Jump to solution

Hi guys,

i have to migrate an old version of HP Logger, 5.0.0.5355.2 to a new version 6.x

I think follow migration guide can be difficult and not productive.

So i decide to replicate the configuration manually.

I have to create a new storage group, but i cannot understand how i can do it.

and i have to recreate all receivers but on  5.0.0.5355.2 i have no idea of where it are.

any idea?

Can you provide me some guide of  5.0.0.5355.2 ?

or can you explain how export configuration from old logger to reable file?

thank in advance

Andrea

Hi,

Logger should be in maintenance mode for the same.

For the same, 

In configuration > Maintenance mode, then it will give you option of adding storage group.

Please check and update.

Dear Andrea,

I hope this helps.

Storage Group:

                                 By default, Arcsight logger comes with 2 storage groups i.e. Default Storage Group and Internal Event Storage Group. Administrator can add maximum 4 extra storage groups as per the need.

                                 Logger can have a maximum of six storage groups; therefore, you can create an additional four storage groups after your Logger has been initialized. Each storage group can have different settings. You can change the retention policy and size for all storage groups, but you can only change the name of the user-defined storage groups.

Creation of Storage Group:

1. Click Configuration > Storage Groups.

2. Mention Storage Group name , Maximum Age in days and Maximum size in GB.

3. Click Add button on top left panel

4. Verify the information.

Generally it can take 5 - 30 mins of time, do not interrupt or refresh the page.

It should come back with success note once it is gone in maintenance mode.

Also make sure you have enough space available to create new storage groups, if not you can reduce the size from default storage group and then assign that space to new group.

I would highly recommend these docs before you proceed in your configuration because storage groups are somthing which cannot be reverted if once created.

Follow these documents for each topics you are interested in.

Thanks.

Hi Andrea,

to reduce the Default Storage Group:

Configuration --> (section Storage) Storage Group --> click on the "Dafault Storage Group"

change the value Maximum size.


Be aware that if you reduce the maximum storage from the current value you can  lose some events writed on the space that you want to delete.


For more information, read the admin guide or the the best practices for logger
