Windows events to graylog server


(Np97190) #1

HI,

I am new to graylog and I have tried setting up sidecar with winlogbeat which seems to be configured properly, but I am not receiving events in graylog. Here are the details -

Global Input-
Global_Input

Winlogbeat.yml

fields:
  collector_node_id: graylog-collector-sidecar
  gl2_source_collector: 429cfebb-462b-45b9-9082-ee958656cb5e
output:
  logstash:
hosts:
- XX.XX.XX.X:5044
path:
  data: C:\Program Files\graylog\collector-sidecar\cache\winlogbeat\data
  logs: C:\Program Files\graylog\collector-sidecar\logs
tags:
- windows
winlogbeat:
  event_logs:
  - name: Application
  - name: System
  - name: Security

I could see EventLog[System] successfully published 1 events log entry in winlogbeat log file but in graylog web UI there is no data under search tab.

First order of business is: did you handwrite the winlogbeat.yml file? Or was it generated by Graylog? Because it’s the latter that needs to be done. When using the Sidecar, you don’t manually manage BEATS.

Funnily enough we just had a discussion about setting up the Sidecar over here:

Thanks for the response

winlogbeat.yml was created automatically when configuration was created in graylog.

I found out that the problem is with Graylog server. I pointed windows collector to other graylog server and it is sending logs to server.

Thanks
