Automatic naming of uploaded log files in MWG 7.0.x

Jump to solution

We have MWG 7.0.x uploading access logs after being gzip.

The uploading of the gz files works, however in the log server the name of the file is changed as shown below:

Source file name: access1112292355.log.gz

Destination file name: access1112292355-fe80..21e.c9ff.fe57.d3b2.log.gz

Not sure why IPv6 is added at the end instead of IPv4.

I want to IPv4 at the end like my other MWG logs (I have 4 total MWGs).

The release notes is your friend (this is a good bookmark):

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB68751

It's listed as:

-"In a log file that was pushed, entries recording file access had IPv6 addresses in the file names although only the IPv4 protocol had been used when accessing the files. (649652)"

This is an old issue which was fixed in 7.1. The log manager was identifying local addresses (for IPv6 interfaces even if they were disabled). In 7.1 this does not occur.

I do not know of a way to correct this easily.

Jon,

Thanks for the response. Is there a place this issue is documented as know issue.  It will help leverage the update from 7.0.2.2 to 7.1.x

Thanks!!
