Hi,

I have installed nxlog inside the Virtual Machine in vCenter whenever i am starting nxlog service then by default it's try to connect one particular IP which is gate way of vCenter and then connection gets failed so changed IP address to Virtual Machine IP from config.d file but still connection gets failed but whenever performing query from nxlog then it successfully send event logs to Splunk. Can you please help me here to understand the issue. I am doing POC(Prof of Concept) on NXlog for philips products.

Hello,

The connection your agent tries to make is to NXLog Manager, hence, it shouldn't affect proper work of your NXLog agent.

If you're not testing NXLog Manager, you can simply comment/disable xm_admin related modules.

Since it's NXLog Enterprise Edition question, we appreciate that you directed you other questions to Presales team directly.

Best regards,
Raf
