auotmated log generation for HIPS  8

Hello,

 

as a part of local IT second level i am automating the collection of logfiles for several issues

we are encountering.  

As i found the Logs located in "C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Host Intrusion Prevention" are not

as detailled as we need them to be.

sometimes it is neccecary to collect the detailled logs from the HostIntrusioinPrevention.

 

Until now we do the following by hand to collect the logs:

- manage Features / HIPS

--> toogle to the activity-log and press "export"

 

How can i do that log export automated ?

 

 

Thanks and Best Regards

    PD23014 - Host Intrusion Prevention 8.0 ClientControl.exe Utility Readme

    Exporting the Host IPS Activity Log to a text file.

    1. Open a command shell.

    2. Run clientcontrol.exe /export <path of export file>

    3. Copy the exported log file to another computer for collection, analysis, etc.

    This is correct.  The McAfeeFireLog.txt (your first example; non-ClientControl log) has no automated export process; it must be manually exported by clicking on the EXPORT option in the Host IPS Client UI.
