Re: ESM Administrator Application

What is the version of SIEM you are trying to connect to? It does not believe the SIEM device you are connecting to is a valid ESM. This could be because the version you are connecting to does not support the ESM admin app or it could be because services are not started on the ESM. It could also be that the app cannot reach the ESM.


Thank You,

Re: ESM Administrator Application

Happened to work on this case. We are unable to access the UI as well as the ssh.


Tried accessing it through chrome where it indicated that ESM services are not started yet.

We also were unable to get the console access. This is a new setup, advised to install it again using the latest version 11.4.5 and if the issue still persists, will dig this further.
