- Stop WinAgents HyperConf and WinAgents SYSLOG services,
- Back up the DB. On default DB files are stored in the directory 'c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WinAgents\HyperConf\'. HCUserData.mdb file contains data on network devices and device configurations backups. HCSystemData.mdb file contains data on device types and other HyperConf system data,
- To continue start WinAgents SYSLOG and WinAgents HyperConf services.
Yes. If technically it is possible, we will organize your devices support in the program. Send an e-mail to our support team. Our specialists will require from you the information on the configuration backup method out of your device and will provide its support.
For some devices, 'Changed By' field in Configuration History can not be filled. Why?
'Changed By' field is filled according to the information about the author of changes in device configuration or SYSLOG message. Unfortunately, not all devices support this information. If you are sure that your device configuration contains information about the author of the changes, send a request to our support team. We will help you.
Why, when SYSLOG message is received from a device XXX, configuration backup does not start?
WinAgents HyperConf starts backing up in case if the received SYSLOG message corresponds to the template given for this device type. SYSLOG messages templates can be configured in Program Options window (Backups Tab).
If backing up does not start when SYSLOG message is received, check the following:
Why I can not receive configuration from Cisco PIX (or Cisco ASA) device?
- Is 'Detect configuration changes using SYSLOG' option in configuration backup window activated? Is backup option activated for this device?
- Does IP-address, from which SYSLOG are received, correspond to the address under which the device is registered in the catalog? The device can send SYSLOG messages from any interface.
- Does the received SYSLOG message correspond to the template, specified for this very device type?
Cisco PIX and Cisco ASA devices require evident TFTP-server address specification, where their configuration can be copied. Besides, it is necessary evidently specify addresses, from which connection to devices though TELNET or SSH protocols is possible.
To work with these devices you should specify the address of the computer with WinAgents HyperConf as TFTP server and allow connection TELNET or SSH from it.
Why I do not see messages from XXX device in SYSLOG messages log?
Check if the address, under which the device is registered in HyperConf catalog corresponds to the address, from which SYSLOG messages are sent.
Try option 'Do not receive SYSLOG messages from unknown devices' in the bookmark. Advanced dialog Program Options.
