Configuring WinCollect Agents After Installation
In managed WinCollect deployments, you can use JSA for many agent configuration tasks. In stand-alone deployments, use the WinCollect Configuration Console to manage your WinCollect deployment.
Some WinCollect agent configurations must be performed on the Windows host where the agent is installed.
Configuring Managed WinCollect Agents
After you install a managed WinCollect deployment, you manage your deployment by using JSA.
You can manage your WinCollect agents, destinations, and schedules. You can also manage configuration options for systems with restricted policies.
The WinCollect agent is responsible for communicating with the individual log sources, parsing events, and forwarding the event information to JSA by using syslog.
After you install the WinCollect agent on your Windows host, wait for JSA to automatically discover the WinCollect agent. The automatic discovery process typically takes a few minutes to complete.
The registration request to the JSA host might be blocked by firewalls in your network.
