Is there going to be any way to remotely configure the SolarWinds Log Forward like the snare product. This makes it easier to manage in the enterprise.
PS. Does this support all log events System/Application/Security/File Replication etc
Not at this stage unfortunately. It is something that the Product Team have discussed before and it is recognized as a feature that we'd like to include in the future... it's just not gonna make the cut for this first-up release.
Currently, the only way to manage remote deployments is by pushing out copies of the LogForwarderSettings file to the remote machine. In other words, modifying the configuration on a local machine, and pushing the same configuration out to one or more remote machines.
In answer to your other question, Yes, Log Forwarder supports all event logs that are normally available through the Windows Event Viewer.
Julian, just to piggyback on Mike's comments, we believe that most customers will prefer to manage multiple Log Forwarder settings using a file-based deployment using SMS (or some other software deployment mechanism) versus one by one using your web browser. We were also concerned about the security implications of standing up web servers for every Log Forwarder deployed.
Could you please advise me as to when Log Forwarder will be ‘officially’ released and available to purchase?
Also, will it work with previous releases of SysLog Server or will it require 9.0?
