This topic tells administrators how to configure an ESA to connect to the Context Hub on another ESA. Only one Context Hub can be installed per Security Analytics installation. If you have more than one ESA and you run the Context Hub, you need to enable the ESA without the Context Hub to communicate with the Context Hub on another ESA. 

Prerequisites

You must be running multiple ESAs and a Context Hub.

Procedure

Configure ESA to connect to the Context Hub on another ESA. 

  1. Note the IP address of the ESA that is running the context hub service.
  2. From Administration > Services,  select the ESA service that is not running the Context Hub and then  > View > Explore
  3.  In the left hand panel, navigate to Service > ContextHub, then select contextHubTransport.
  4. Edit the Host field to point to the Domain name or IP address of the ESA that is running the Context Hub service.

Result

The ESA connects to the Context Hub on another ESA service.
