Hi,

Please help me with the solution of the below issue that I am facing while doing the configuration of oracle on windows server with nxlog. I have used below nxlog conf file to fetch Oracle event logs:

## This is a sample configuration file. See the nxlog reference manual about the
## configuration options. It should be installed locally and is also available
## online at http://nxlog.org/nxlog-docs/en/nxlog-reference-manual.html

## Please set the ROOT to the folder your nxlog was installed into,
## otherwise it will not start.

#define ROOT C:\Program Files\nxlog
define ROOT C:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog

Moduledir %ROOT%\modules
CacheDir %ROOT%\data
Pidfile %ROOT%\data\nxlog.pid
SpoolDir %ROOT%\data
LogFile %ROOT%\data\nxlog.log

<Extension syslog>
Module xm_syslog
</Extension>

<Input in_Oracle>
Module im_file
File 'D:\app\Administrator\diag\rdbms\svxlive\svxlive2\trace'
SavePos TRUE
Exec if $raw_event =~ /HealthMailbox/ drop();
Exec if $raw_event =~ /^#/ drop();
</Input>

<Output out_Oracle>
Module om_udp
Host CCE-IP
Port 514
Exec $SyslogFacilityValue = 2;
Exec $SourceName = 'oracle_logs';
Exec to_syslog_bsd();

</Output>

<Route 1>
Path in_Oracle => out_Oracle
</Route>

Below is the patch where Oracle events are storing and I have put the same path in conf file as well:
D:\app\Administrator\diag\rdbms\svxlive\svxlive2\trace

When I have restarted the nxlog services, I found below error in data folder:
2021-08-12 15:14:02 ERROR failed to open D:\app\Administrator\diag\rdbms\svxlive\svxlive2\trace; Access is denied.
2021-08-12 15:14:06 ERROR last message repeated 2 times
2021-08-12 15:14:10 ERROR failed to open D:\app\Administrator\diag\rdbms\svxlive\svxlive2\trace; Access is denied.
2021-08-12 15:14:18 ERROR failed to open D:\app\Administrator\diag\rdbms\svxlive\svxlive2\trace; Access is denied.

Can you please let me know why its showing access denied and how I can resolve this?

Thanks,
Priyanka

    Hello.
    Access denied isn't something which is resolved directly with NXLog, it's a sign of lacking permissions for a user, who's running NXLog, to get an access to mentioned file.
    Could you try to grant them with access? Read permissions should be enough to solve this issue.
    Best regards, Arch
