How to add the logs of EMC unity storage to splunk?

Explorer

I want to integrate EMC unity 500 storage with Splunk, to be able to see its logs on Splunk, so how can I do that?

I opened a ticket with EMC and they informed me that "Remote Logging" are only logs that can be sent directly off the Unity platform. There is no way of gathering performance or capacity data that is supported by Dell/EMC.

There are two different logs. Unity system logs can be sent to from Unity to a remote syslog server.

File system audit logs can be pushed out from the Unity using the CEE framework to a host. Another method would be to monitor the security.evt file on the Unity that holds the audit entries. The file is located \unity_netbios_name\C$\security.evt.

Page 33 of https://www.emc.com/collateral/TechnicalDocument/docu69322.pdf has the instructions on how to enable file system auditing.

I've been told EMC Common Event Enabler (CEE) Framework is required for Unity

Not true?

Unity supports sending logs to syslog. Did you have issues configuring that?

Hi @ahmedzard - did you end up working this out? I'm looking to do the same.
