Article Number000029814
Applies ToRSA Product Set: NetWitness Logs & Network
RSA Product/Service Type: Virtual Log Collector (VLC), Windows Legacy Collector (WLC)
RSA Version/Condition: 10.6.x, 11.x
O/S Version: CentOS
IssueThe Virtual Log Collector or Window Legacy Collector is failing to send events to the Local Log Collector.

The /var/log/messages file in the Virtual Log Collector shows an error similar to the following:


Feb 26 17:48:38 vlc nw[3957]: [BufferedChannel] [failure] An error occurred publishing to an AMQP channel: NO_ROUTE, exchange: sdee, routing key: sdee


The error above indicates that the Virtual Log Collector is receiving SDEE events but is unable to send these events to the Local Log Collector.
 
CauseThis issue is caused if:
  • There is no destination set for the Virtual Log Collector or a specific collection is missing from the destination.
  • There is no source set for the Local Log Collector or a specific collection is missing from the source
The error above mentioned shows the sdee collection is missing from the Local Collector destination as shown below:
