Configure

This setup guide will show you how to forward your Veeam logs to Sekoia.io by means of a syslog transport channel.

Prerequisites

An internal log concentrator is required to collect and forward events to Sekoia.io.

Enable syslog forwarding

To enable syslog forwarding:

  1. Open the burger menu in the Veeam Backup & Replication Console and select Options.

    step_1.png

  2. In the Options dialog, select the Event Forwarding tab.

    step_2.png

  3. Add a new syslog server.

    step_3.png

  4. Enter the log concentrator's address and port, then select the transport protocol you need.

    step_4.png

Create an intake

Go to the intake page and create a new intake from the Veeam Backup format.

Forward logs to Sekoia.io

Please consult the Syslog Forwarding documentation to forward these logs to Sekoia.io.
