    SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator

    insearchof

      Just installed SolarWinds Event Log Consolidator on my Windows 2012 R2 Standard Server

       

      Had to install netframe 3,51 first strange that solarwinds cant work with netframe 4.5 which 2012 installs but that's not my problem

       

      I have the free version and I am stuck on step one it will not allow me to add a server to monitor not even the one I have Event Log Consolidator installed on

       

      It fails the credentials test every time

       

      I have tried by ip address  by server name by fully qualified dns name

       

      The username domain\administrator

       

      password

       

      confirm password

       

      I know what the password is I logon to this server every day

       

      I have tried every server on my network no luck they all logon with same account

       

      What am I doing wrong here

       

      This seems to be a very basic function should not have this kind of issue

       

       

      Thoughts

       

      Message was edited by: Thomas Grassi I was not using LOCALHOST for the Servername  Now I have the Local Server added   Great. How do I select which LOG I want to monitor If I go into Windows Event Viewer I see Windows Logs Application Security Setup System Forwarded Events Can I select Forwarded Events Only if I can how do I do that?
