Server Started.
Please connect your client at http://localhost:8400

If everything is configured correctly go to http://syslog:8400 and you will be able to log in using the standard credentials of admin/admin. If the portal is not available you'll probably have to check your firewall settings.

Firewall Configuration

To open the port 8400 follow these steps:

Open the firewall configuration tool using this command:

[root@syslog ~]# system-config-firewall-tui

and follow these steps:

  • Select Customize
  • Select Forward
  • Select Add
    • As port enter “8400”
    • As protocol enter “tcp” (case sensitive)
  • Select OP, Close and OK and finally Yes to submit the changes to the firewall configuration.

> Note: Perform the above steps also for port 514, udp to allow servers to send their syslog messages to this host

When done check your configuration by querying the firewall status:

[root@syslog ~]# service iptables status
Table: filter
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
num  target     prot opt source               destination
1    ACCEPT     all  --  0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           state RELATED,ESTABLISHED
2    ACCEPT     icmp --  0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0
3    ACCEPT     all  --  0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0
4    ACCEPT     tcp  --  0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           state NEW tcp dpt:22
5    ACCEPT     tcp  --  0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           state NEW tcp dpt:8400
6    ACCEPT     udp  --  0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           state NEW udp dpt:514
7    REJECT     all  --  0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
num  target     prot opt source               destination
1    REJECT     all  --  0.0.0.0/0            0.0.0.0/0           reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
num  target     prot opt source               destination

As you can see in rule 5, tcp to destination port 8400 is allowed now.

Shutdown Eventlog Analyzer

To shutdown eventlog analyzer run this command:

[root@syslog ~]# cd /opt/ManageEngine/EventLog/bin/
[root@syslog bin]# ./shutdown.sh
Shutdown message has been posted to the server.
Server shutdown may take a while - check logfiles for completion

Start Eventlog Analyzer as a Service

[root@syslog bin]# /etc/init.d/eventloganalyzer start

Make sure eventloganalyzer start at reboot:

  • Check what runlevel is the default (and running now):
    • who -r
      run-level 3  2012-01-16 10:52
  • Go to /etc/init.d/rc/d/rc3.d
  • Create kill and start links to /etc/init.d/eventloganalyzer:
    • ln -s ../init.d/eventloganalyzer K01eventloganalyzer
    • ln -s ../init.d/eventloganalyzer S99eventloganalyzer Dit geeft:
      lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 26 Jan 16 11:57 K01eventloganalyzer -> ../init.d/eventloganalyzer
      lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 26 Jan 16 11:57 S99eventloganalyzer -> ../init.d/eventloganalyzer
