This article describes how to configure the LEM Agent on your Websense server to monitor the available activity events. Websense sends system events to an SNMP server starting v6.1.
Define the following information on your Websense database before performing the configuration steps.
Note: Consult your database administrator before modifying your database settings.
|Field||SQL Server Express 2005, 2008, 2012||SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2012|
|Database Server Host Name|| |
If you are configuring the connector on the node that has the SQL database, use the following host name: localhost
Otherwise, use the IP address.
|Database Name||wslogdb70||Set your preferred database name.|
|Database Server Instance Name||Find this information by running @@serverName, where serverName is the name of your SQL server.|
|Database Server Port|| |
Perform the following steps to determine the dynamic port assigned to the Websense database instance:
1. Open the SQL Server Configuration Manager.
2. Expand the SQL Server Network Configuration (32bit) item for your version.
3. Select the Protocols for your database server instance name.
4. Select Action > Properties.
5. In the Protocol Name list, select TCP/IP.
6. Select Action > Properties. The Dynamic Port number is at the bottom of the list.
|Database Server Username and Password||If you are using mixed-mode SQL authentication, enter administrator-level credentials for the Websense server.|
Install the SolarWinds LEM Agent on the Websense server using the SolarWinds LEM Agent Installer or Remote Agent Installer.
Open the LEM Console, and go to Manage > Nodes.
Locate the Websense Agent in the list and click Options > Connectors.
Locate the Websense Web Filter and Websense Web Security Database connector in the list, and click Options > New.
Complete the form using the information gathered in the Requirements section and then click Save.
Next to the new connector, click Options > Start.
Once this procedure is completed, activity events from your Websense server should be seen in your LEM Console.
If the connector does not start, verify that the connector settings are the same as the SQL server settings.
