SIEM NSP Integration Error SSH communication is not authorized for this device


I hope you can help me. We have integrated McAfee SIEM with Network Security Platform. We are receiving events and the connection tests for the UI and Database results in success. But when i try to rollout the policies i receive the following error.

Error SSH SIEM NSP v2.png

Do we have to enable ssh somewhere in the siem or the NSP?

Re: SIEM NSP Integration Error SSH communication is not authorized for this device

Hrmmm, could be a failure in host key setup but since you are getting events that means communications *should* be OK. go command line on ESM and ssh to the NSP device to confirm host is in the known_hosts file or just do it manually...  If that still does not resolve the problem put the ESM's root ssh public key in the NSP authorized_keys2 file for the root account and try again.
