Triggering Alarm on McAfee ESM for specific signature

Hi All,

I have a requirement to trigger alarm on WMI logon failure. I tried using the field match for triggering the alarm, where I entered the signature ID 47-000006 under the field match condition, but it didn't trigger any alarm for several such events. I went through some of the blogs to troubleshoot, and found that while triggering alarm using field match option it happens on the ESM. So I think, there is some issue with the ESM, now should I use the internal field match to check like if it could trigger the alarm for all such events as it checks for the condition when the log is at the ERC?

Please share suggestions.

I am using 9.6.3 MR

instead of field match try using internal event match in the condition and put the signature ID field there.

on the other hand try creating alarm from the events you have received and check, that's alternative method.

I doubt something is going wrong on ESM. I don't want to overload the ERC. There could be performance issue on ERC. So, is there any way to troubleshoot the same and make it happen on ESM.

Hi,

Signature ID 47-000006 is one of the correlation rule - did you check correct data source in the "Devices" pane? (it should be Correllation Engine).

Could you please send us some screen from the event and alarm settings?

Regards

MK

the thing is signature id 47-000006 is available from device data as well I have checked from the raw packet data.

But we don't have an ACE here. I think the GTI comes up with a few correlation rules, so all the correlation rules we have are from GTI I guess.
