Symantec Encryption Management Server

 

The Symantec Encryption Management Server DSM for JSA collects syslog events from Symantec Encryption Management Servers.

Symantec Encryption Management Server is formerly known as Symantec PGP Universal Server.

JSA collects all relevant events from the following categories:

  • Administration

  • Software updates

  • Clustering

  • Backups

  • Web Messenger

  • Verified Directory

  • Postfix

  • Client logs

  • Mail

  • Whole Disk Encryption logs

Before you can integrate Symantec Encryption Management Server events with JSA, you must configure Symantec Encryption Management Server to communicate with JSA.

Configuring Symantec Encryption Management Server to communicate with JSA

Enable external logging to forward syslog events to JSA.

  1. n a web browser, log in to your Encryption Management server's administrative interface.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Select the Enable External Syslog check box.
  4. From the Protocol list, select either UDP or TCP.

    By default, JSA uses port 514 to receive UDP syslog or TCP syslog event messages.

  5. In the Hostname field, type the IP address of your JSA Console or Event Collector.
  6. In the Port field, type 514.
  7. Click Save.

    The configuration is complete. The log source is added to JSA as Symantec Encryption Management Server events are automatically discovered. Events that are forwarded to JSA by the Symantec Encryption Management Servers are displayed on the Log Activity tab of JSA.
