Moved to SIEM forum for a better chance of an answer.
HI socgt Never got chance to do this one
Hope this help you and let me know outcome once you finish.
You have to set Data Retrieval to MEF in ESM and please be advised that you can only tail files with the Linux Collector.
Configuration file for version 11 is located in /opt/McAfee/siem/mcafee_siem_collector.conf
Readme file is located in /usr/share/doc/mcafee-siem-collector-11.00.4150/readme.txt
If you are concerned about confidentiality of events then go for the Collector, if not... stay for plain SYSLOG.
Thanks for the suggestion.
I have successfully configured the Event Collector using the method suggested by you on CentOS but the package for Debian does not seems to installing.
I am posting the error below.
Can you please suggest any solution for this.
The installation script is trying to start the service and it fails. I'm not 100% sure but it might have been installed anyway.
Can you check with "dpkg -l | grep mcafee" ?
Also, you might want to install version 11. It should be available in your grant number.
OK. Update the configuration file (/opt/McAfee/siem/mcafee_siem_collector.conf) and try starting the service manually with systemctl start mcafee_siem_collector and verify with systemctl status mcafee_siem_collector.
