ODS logs save in share path


Dear Team,

Can we do this for entire systems in McAfee EPO , for 200 systems can we store the log in
single location...in share...path
as its possible ..

1) I will Create a null-session share on one of your servers.

2) And next I will Change the On-demand-scan log location in the VSE policies and rename it to \\server\share\<COMPUTERNAME>_OnDemandScanLog.txt

Is it possible to perform the above option? We are currently using VSE 8.8 Patch 4 version.

This requirement is not for every time.

From Project any 2 -5 machines infected with virus means, then
client will ask to perform ODS from all systems.

Also their query was we need all system ODS logs. From EPO
server we can able to run query for Scan started and completed with Event ID
(1202 & 1203)

For ODS logs with complete information in text file we need
to connect each machines from that project and then we able to collect the logs.

How to fulfill my current requirement.is it possible or not. Or how we can perform this activity.

Kindly help me in this regard. Its very helpful in our environment.

Regards,

Kumararaja J

Re: ODS logs save in share path

I am not sure if its possible or not but we can try.

Navigate to your ODS task in ePO console and edit the task. Go to Report tab in the task and change log file location setting. Select Computer name option.

<COMPUTER_NAME>\%DEFLOGDIR%\OnDemandScanLog.txt

Place your share path details and make sure everyone should have full permission.

Re: ODS logs save in share path

Dear Team,

I have checked the above option in our environment with full permission.

I am giving the below path for ODS logs file location.

<COMPUTER_NAME>\%DEFLOGDIR%\OnDemandScanLog.txt.

I didn't get if I given the log file path in this way in ODS task where the client machine logs will save.

Do u give me the following log path. How it will come give some example.

My understanding is like this. \\pc12345\%DEFLOGDIR%\OnDemandScanLog.txt

The one which I have mentioned above path is correct format...I have checked from our environment is not properly saving the path while start the scan from server.

Could you Please assist for our query.

Regards,

Kumararaja J

Re: ODS logs save in share path

You can't use %deflogdir% in the middle of a UNC path. If it translates, the path becomes invalid.

Re: ODS logs save in share path

A UNC path is entered as \\server_name\share_name\

FYI, we only support logging to local destinations. If you can make a remote destination work for you though, great.

Re: ODS logs save in share path

Since you're asking me, I will tell you to store the log files locally.

Don't do something that will be unsupported, because it will only hinder your ability to get help from Support when you need it.
