- choosing Quick Setup still defaults to enabling Snorby automatically. It will automatically set SNORBY_ENABLED=yes in /etc/nsm/securityonion.conf and enable the snorby output in /etc/nsm/HOSTNAME-INTERFACE/barnyard2-1.conf.
- choosing Advanced Setup and then Server will ask if you want to enable or disable Snorby. If you choose yes, it will set SNORBY_ENABLED=yes in /etc/nsm/securityonion.conf. Otherwise, it will set SNORBY_ENABLED=no.
- choosing Advanced Setup and then Standalone will ask if you want to enable or disable Snorby. If you choose yes, it will set SNORBY_ENABLED=yes in /etc/nsm/securityonion.conf and enable the snorby output in all /etc/nsm/*/barnyard*.conf files. If you instead choose no, it will set SNORBY_ENABLED=no and disable (comment out) the snorby output in all /etc/nsm/*/barnyard*.conf files.
- choosing Sensor will check /etc/nsm/securityonion.conf on the master server to see if SNORBY_ENABLED=no and, if so, disable (comment out) the Snorby output in all /etc/nsm/*/barnyard*.conf files.
Snorby is going away in the future and so you should begin transitioning to Squert, Sguil, and/or ELSA. If you'd like to disable Snorby in your existing deployment, please see:
