My company has a multiple appliance site (1 D-SRV, 1 A-SRV and 1 LC), which was initially installed and configured in 2008. In the "Overview > System Configuration > Services > Manage Services > Manage Windows Service > Filtered Windows Services:" window, there is a node defined for the D-SRV, the A-SRV and the LC. All three are disabled. I don't recall ever disabling them, but I have been searching the NIC System messages for "%NIC-5-800708" to see if maybe I did. So far I haven't found any evidence that it was disabled, however I'm still looking. Will someone help me with answers to the following questions?
1. Is enVision configured by default to send Windows events to the IPDB via the Windows Service from the appliances (when it was installed and configured, it was running 3.5, however now it is running v4.0 SP 4)?
2. If I enable the nodes for the 3 appliances, I assume I will need to check the "Multi device" checkbox in "Overview > System Configuration > Devices > Manage Monitored Devices - Add/Modify Device" window for each appliance. Is my assumption correct?
Based on Paul's answers, I have a follow-up question.
1. Does anyone know why it's disabled by default? Maybe it makes more sense to use it in conjunction with a DR enVision system or maybe it makes more sense to have a different system monitor enVision? Currently, I send SNMP traps from our enVision appliances to Orion, but that seems to be stuff like server reboots, failing hard drives, cpu utilization, etc.
As I can see, this a very old post, but I found this related to one of the products that I have worked on. One of the basic question that you have, which say "monitor enVision". Well sometime back, we did introduce a platform called the RSA Secure Remote Service Solution, which can be used to keep track of enVision. Its a solution which can actually monitor any issues related to enVision and let the RSA Customer Support sort it out with ease.
If interested, you can get in touch with the RSA Customer Support to find out more about it OR write back to me so that I can guide you to the right people here.
