Match SIEM events by computer name

I would like to get all events from a given computer name in an AD environment where DHCP change host IPs.

- How should I match a host name to its IP on each event loged? (the hostname is not part of most data sources logs)

- How should I match all historical events to a given hostname?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Match SIEM events by computer name

Do you have an event being logged on the windows side recording this info you are requesting?

Re: Match SIEM events by computer name

Yes, a file on the DHCP Servers records this info.

This is a sample of the file:

Re: Match SIEM events by computer name

I would assume you would need to put the McAfee Agent Collector on each DHCP host in order in order to keep logs separated by hostname...Do you have ePO implemented - you can easily push the Agent to each server this way.
