SIEM Collector 11.x

Ive configured a SIEM collector to send generic log tail, but we are not receiveing any logs in the receiver. we checked the debug log and kept seeing this error over and over:

"<131> Oct 03 15:22:54 localhost SIEMCollector ERROR 0 FileTailBookmarkManager::Init Failed to access logs in directory [D:\AS400]: ERROR [18]"


can someone help me to determine the problem? thanks

Re: SIEM Collector 11.x

Can you provide the configuration you are using?    What is the file name format of the files in the directory?

You can try unc path vs. D:\AS400  such as \\server\d$\AS400\

Also, can you validate the filemask matches the files in the directory?  Can you try *.log if they end in log?
