Device Address not populated

Hi,

I have an issue where some of my syslog events are  appearing on the ESM with a blank device address. When i check, there is entry for it in the host.txt file and  the connector server  can manually resolve from host to IP but still the device address is null while device hostname is populated. there is no partten to this as some other event appears with device address  populated.

I have

Is it also true that the  " Enable name Resolution= True"  only works for :

Source / Destinaton only mode: The device address and name are not resolved   ?

I attached a screenshot of the network settings of the connector.

Thanks.

Hi ladele,

I hope since it is an Syslog Device Reporting in.. U need to check the Raw log.. Coz most of the time raw logs itself will contain the Hostname instead of ip address like Linux Machines..

Hi bala ,

How about Windows connector for the same issue ?

Only hostname is populating ,some events with Device address but not for all !

So i need all the logs from wins connector should contain both - device hostname/address.

regards,

Santhosh I

Hi Santhosh,

Have u compared the Raw and CEF Log.. It might helpful to identify from device side or agent side resolution

I checked and found , unable to see any ip-address in event-viewer of particular server.  No IP-address present in event viewer.

Is that possible to do hostname resolution ?
