Network Management involves issues that are independent of specific hardware or software, including email policies, upgrade planning, backup scheduling and working with managed service providers for Desktop-As-A-Service (DaaS), Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) and the like through the use of tools, coupled with manufacturer standards, best practice guidelines, policies and procedures plus all other relevant documentation. Network management also includes monitoring, alerting and reporting, management reporting, planning for device or service updates, the backup of configurations, the setting of key performance indicators and measures (KPIs/KPMs), associated service level agreements and problem records as part of the IT Service Management (ITSM) framework.

Using Splunk 6.6.2 - I need to monitor a directory on specific servers for files named '*.out'.  I plan to create an alert when these files are discovered based on search criteria within a time frame.

I configured inputs.conf to include the directories that will be monitored.  I created a sourcetype named 'boofiles' linking to the inputs.conf entry.

Scenario:
Monitored directory contains the following files:
boo1.out
boo2.out
boot3.out

When I search; index=main sourcetype=boofiles, I expect three results:
boo1.out
boo2.out
boo3.out

Currently, I am receiving dozens of results for each log as the contents of the log are broken into many results.

Any ideas?  Thanks!

I am running in to an issue with AT&T AVPN setup and need to get your views.
This setup will have 3 site AVPN with only main site with VNIC for Internet access.
Both the remote sites need to go across the AVPN to go out to Internet via Main site VNIC.

Main site has 2 VRF - INTERNAL and INTERNET
Remote sites have only one VRF - INTERNAL.

Remote sites need to reach out to main site for Internet access.
I have BGP between all three servers via AT&T BGP sessions for INTERNAL VRF.

So I have installed a program on my laptops for students they have HDD access but for some reason they cannot see the installed program they cannot even search for it. Also all of the end users cannot see  any of the app in the C:\Users\Public\Desktop. Is there a Group Policy that I can edit in order to allow the end users to see all programs and anything that I drop in the C:\Users\Public\Desktop? We are running win2k12 server sys pack 2 with active directory.

Hello,

There seems to be a lot of discards happening on an interface of my Catalyst 9300. Here are some images to validate what is happening.

This port on the switch goes to a Fortigate 300E. Would I be able to identify these discarded packets with Wireshark and spanning the port like so:
monitor session 1 source interface TwoGigabitEthernet1/0/8
monitor session 1 destination interface tenGigabitEthernet 1/0/45 encapsulation replicate

 I ended up trying it with Wireshark and got this, but not sure if it's my problem.

Since last year, we have been using Ubiquiti radios to connect for internet connectivity from one point of our new office to the other.

However, now we are considering to use point to point, directional antenna WiFi transmitters. Kindly recommend the radio to use for video feed of 4k of up to 16 camera https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N0B6KSA/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_api_ysh-BbDAEKWAS   from same distance.

I recently got the recommendation for Cambium Force 300. Is this advisable or something else ?

Within Cisco ISE...we're trying to figure out why a particular user keeps getting denied by locking his account.  I'm not very familiar with this tool and need to know where to look for this audit/log.  I've looked around and seems like it maybe coming from the AD side, but not 100% sure.  Also need to know exactly which device is doing the denying.

Anyone noticing whether or not RMM agents are sufficient for managing most small (5, 10, 15, 20 users) small business networks or do you really push the client to deploy Azure AD with premium 1 service?  What is the preferred RMM agent of choice for features, ease of deployment, management, and overall satisfaction?  I noticed Kaseya packages Webroot or some sort of relationship with malware/virus protection company.  Being able to quickly notified/respond to malware attacks, notified when backups are failing, easily remote in, see when computers are phoning home, locking them down when the user is terminated or the computer is stolen, and view everything from one nice neat dashboard is on the top of my list.  Is there an RMM solution for all this or is this a combination of features with RMM and Azure AD?

Hello,

We are testing  HPE IMC 7.3 and would like to install a  Windows PKI SSL certificate for the management web interface. I suspect I will have to import the ROOT and ISSUING CA certificates, as well as the SERVER certificate. How do I achieve that? Do I just add them to the java keystore? Do I need to create a new keystore? If I need to create a new keystore, where do I tell IMC to use the new keystore?

Thank you!

Hello, Experts.  I just started a position and I'm evaluating cloud based HelpDesk software.  Would like recommendations on a system that will do basic HelpDesk functionality (portal to case, email to case) as well as the ability to have several Queues.  I also need good integrated Inventory scanning and management and AD integration (Customer authentication to portal and for user selection and Inventory hardware to user matching).  Reporting is also important, what we don't track we didn't do.  I've looked at several products but would like some recommendations.

Dear Experts

We have application servers hosted on-premise, the servers are behind the firewall.  users who access the application server from external network have to pass though the VPN network. I am looking for the network monitoring tool and also vulnerable scanning tool for web application server. I found following New Relic network monitoring tool and Qualys Security solution but these are cloud based. Please suggest for on premise deployment and suggestions please.
Thanks in advance.

I have been tasked with upgrading a component on SIMS that I believe syncs data to a third party website ParentPay. Being quite new in the education aspect of IT I have not had much dealings with SIMS itself apart from restarting SQL instances when SIMS is down.

I am just wondering if anybody has any insight on this? Capita makes it difficult to find any technical guides or my researching skills are not the same anymore :).

I would like to know if the MIS:Sync is likely to be installed on the MIS / SIMS server or do I need to look anywhere else? Do I have to upgrade any components on any clients? I can see a guide explaining how to link MIS:Sync to the ParentPay website but is any configuration necessary.

I could of totally misunderstood how MIS:Sync, & SIMS & ParentPay work but it would be great for some insight all the same.

If any of you require any more information I am happy to help the best I can.

Thanks in advance,
Antony

Hi

I have a network with a Layer2 link back to a datacentre which provides our internet connection, we have no firewall onsite at present but looking to install one.

We have ordered an internet connection on premise.

We want to keep our Layer 2 connection and make use of it somehow.

We want to use the new internet connection on-premise and a firewall to route the internet. What's the best way to do this?
