Sun Solaris DHCP

 

The JSA DSM for Sun Solaris DHCP collects Syslog events from a Sun Solaris DHCP system.

To integrate Sun Solaris DHCP with JSA, complete the following steps:

  1. If automatic updates are not enabled, download and install the most recent versions of the following RPMs from https://support.juniper.net/support/downloads/ onto your JSA Console:
    • DSM Common Rational Portfolio Manager

    • Sun Solaris DHCP DSM RPM

  2. Configure your Sun Solaris DHCP system to send events to JSA. For more information about configuring Sun Solaris DHCP to communicate with JSA, see the following procedures:
  3. If JSA does not automatically detect the log source, add a Sun Solaris DHCP log source on the JSA Console. For more information about configuring Syslog log source parameters, see Syslog Log Source Parameters for Sun Solaris DHCP.

Syslog Log Source Parameters for Sun Solaris DHCP

If JSA does not automatically detect the log source, add a Sun Solaris DHCP log source on the JSA Console by using the Syslog protocol.

When using the Syslog protocol, there are specific parameters that you must use.

The following table describes the parameters that require specific values to collect Syslog events from Sun Solaris DHCP:

Table 1: Syslog Log Source Parameters for the Sun Solaris DHCP DSM

Parameter

Value

Log Source Name

Type a name for your log source.

Log Source Description

Type a description for the log source.

Log Source Type

Solaris Operating System Authentication Messages

Protocol Configuration

Syslog

Log Source Identifier

Type the IP address or host name for the log source as an identifier for events from Sun Solaris installations.

Each additional log source that you create when you have multiple installations ideally includes a unique identifier, such as an IP address or host name.

Configuring Sun Solaris DHCP

The Sun Solaris DHCP DSM for JSA records all relevant DHCP events by using syslog.

To collect events from Sun Solaris DHCP, you must configure syslog to forward events to JSA.

  1. Log in to the Sun Solaris command-line interface.
  2. Edit the /etc/default/dhcp file.
  3. Enable logging of DHCP transactions to syslog by adding the following line:

    LOGGING_FACILITY=X

    Where X is the number corresponding to a local syslog facility, for example, a number 0 - 7.

  4. Save and exit the file.
  5. Edit the /etc/syslog.conf file.
  6. To forward system authentication logs to JSA, add the following line to the file:

    localX.notice @<IP address>

    Where:

    X is the logging facility number that you specified in Step 3.

    <IP address> is the IP address of your JSA. Use tabs instead of spaces to format the line.

  7. Save and exit the file.
  8. Type the following command:

    kill -HUP `cat /etc/syslog.pid`

You are now ready to configure the log source in JSA.

Configuring Sun Solaris

The Sun Solaris DSM for JSA records all relevant Solaris authentication events by using syslog.

To collect authentication events from Sun Solaris, you must configure syslog to forward events to JSA.

  1. Log in to the Sun Solaris command-line interface.
  2. Open the /etc/syslog.conf file.
  3. To forward system authentication logs to JSA, add the following line to the file:

    *.err;auth.notice;auth.info@<IP address>

    Where <IP address> is the IP address of your JSA. Use tabs instead of spaces to format the line.

    Note

    Depending on the version of Solaris, you are running, you might need to add more log types to the file. Contact your system administrator for more information.

  4. Save and exit the file.
  5. Type the following command:

    kill -HUP `cat /etc/syslog.pid`

You are now ready to configure the log source JSA.

Note

If a Linux log source is created for the Solaris system that is sending events, disable the Linux log source, and then adjust the parsing order. Ensure that the Solaris DSM is listed first.
