eDir Collector Pack Plug-in and Sentinel 7 incompatibility?


Hi there,

My customer is running Sentinel 7.0.1 and is in an eDirectory
environment. After initial installation, I only see the "Sentinel Core"
types of Reports and Filters. I'm attempting to import the
Novell_eDirectory_6.1r9.spz.zip Collector Pack Plug-in file. So far, so
good. When I use the SCC Solution Manager and add the Collector Pack
Plug-in, I'm asked to select the Crystal Reports server (not applicable
for me) or a local directory for various Oracle and SQL reports. The
import indicates OK and Installed except for the Jasper reports which
are the ones I think I want like Novell-eDirectory_Self-Password-Changes
report. Nothing new shows up in Sentinel with new reports.

Is the Collector Pack Plug-in not appropriate for Sentinel 7? If not,
why isn't there one for something as basic as eDirectory??

Thanks,
Kirk

The eDirectory collector hasn't been updated since Sentinel 7.x was
released so its collector pack is probably not going to be helpful to you:

Supported Sentinel Versions: Sentinel 6.1.x, Sentinel RD 6.1x, Sentinel
Log Manager 1.0 HF5 and above
</quote>

Luckily most of product-specific reports (event count summary for
eDirectory, event details for eDirectory, etc.) were removed and made
possible via the improved reporting of Log Manager and Sentinel 7 along
with more abstract reports. I haven't tried looking at the queries
behind the 'eDirectory Self-Password-Changes' report on other systems
but generally all of these types of things which are simple queries for
an action by a specific user against another user (in this case, a
password change by a user against himself) can be done with the
filtering in Sentinel 7, along with a lot more. If creating the reports
causes you problems feel free to get a connector dump of the events that
should show up in the report (along with some others if you'd like) and
post them to be replayed. With that done it should be possible to
figure out the feasibility of any old filter, or if there is a need to
use the RDD functionality to use a relational database for other queries
that need relationships.

Good luck.
