do I need a Windows-based Collector Manager ?


SLM 1.2.2 with latest Windows Collectors and Connectors

Please help me understand:

1 - is it supported or does it work if I add a 'MS AD and Windows'
Collector on a Linux-based Collector Manager ?

as per document('Novell Login'
(http://support.novell.com/products/sentinel/doc/collectors/Microsoft_Active-Directory-and-Windows_6.1r6.pdf))>
> NOTE: In order to collect Windows events using the Windows Event (WMI)
> Connector, you will need to have at least one
> Windows-based Collector Manager system with the appropriate .NET
> libraries installed.


i.e as far as I understand, I must need Windows-based Collector
Manager... correct ?

2 - as per the WMI Connector document, Windows-based Collector Manager
is not supported
'Novell Login'
(http://support.novell.com/products/sentinel/doc/connectors/Windows-Event-%28WMI%29_2011.1r1.pdf)
>
> NOTE: In Sentinel 7, the Collector Manager is supported only on Linux

i.e as far as I understand, To collect logs/events from Windows
Systems, I can add 'Windows Collector' and 'WMI Connector' atop
Linux-Based Collector Manager, and additionally I need a Windows 2008 R2
machine with just the WECS installed. So Windows2008R2(WECS) will fetch
the events/data from Windows Systems and then pass over to 'WMI
Connector', which eventually pass the events to 'MS AD and Windows
Collector'.. and both the Connector and Collector are running on
Linux-Based Collector Manager.

Please correct me if I am wrong

Regards

The collector documentation was written before the new connector was
released so it is just out of date. The only requirement for the lesser
platform in the first place was the connector, so requirements are all
based on the connector's needs, not the collector's. The connector
explicitly states that Log Manager is supported so the collector should
not care beyond that.

Also, Log Manager 1.2.2 does not exist. The current patch is 2, making
Log Manager 1.2.0.2 the latest.

Good luck.

So to collect Windows Systems Logs, I just need a Linux-based Collector
Manager with 'MS AD & Windows Collector' and 'WMI Connector'.

Do I need a Win2k8 R2(WECS) too ? if yes then WECS will connect and
fetch the events from Windows Systems then a WMI connector running on
Linux-Based Collector Manager collects the logs
from WECS, and that logs/event will further evaluate/parse via 'MS AD
and Windows Collector'.

You still need a windows box as mentioned in the connector
documentation, just not for the CM.

Good luck.
