Adding a Device to the WinCollect Configuration Console
Add the devices that WinCollect monitors to the WinCollect Configuration Console.
- Under Devices, right-click the device type that matches the device you want to add and select Add New Device.
- In the Add New Device box, enter a name for the destination device.
- In the Basic Configurations window, complete
the parameters for the new destination device.
On the Basic Configurations page of the Microsoft Windows Event log device type, you can set a global Default Event Log Poll Protocol. The default value is MSEVEN6.
To configure a single Microsoft Windows Event Log device to use the global Default Event Log Poll Protocol, select default from the Basic Configurations page of the device. Otherwise, select MSEVEN6 or MSEVEN to override the global Default Event Log Poll Protocol.
The MSEVEN6 is a Microsoft event protocol that collects more information from an event log, such as the task, keyword, and opcode. It also provides a better message formatting.
- Click Deploy Changes under Actions.
