Each service is modeled as a plugin to enable or disable according to the function of the host.


Equipment, which can be physical or virtual, must be installed: Security Analytics server, Broker, Concentrator, Decoder, Log Decoder, Archiver, Warehouse, Malware Analysis server, or Event Stream Analysis server.


Perform the following steps to add a Service to a Host:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.
    The Administration Services view is displayed.
  2. In the Administration Services view, select Icon-Add.png in the Services panel toolbar.
    The Add Service dialog is displayed.
  3. From the drop-down list, select the host the server will run on. 
  4. Type the name of the service.

    Note: An understandable naming convention can make administrative tasks easier. Some administrators find it convenient to use the hostname or IP address (specified in the Host field) for the Name as well.

  5. (Optional) In the Connection Details section:
    • SSL - If you use a trusted connection, select SSL
    • Username and Password - Type the credentials assigned to the user on Security Analytics Server.
  1. (Optional) In the Options section, to activate and apply a license select Entitle Service. This option appears only for services that require a license.
  2. Click Save. The service is added and the dialog closes.
