Jason Boss said... a little further ahead...i didn't realize it was directory caring for where this was run and such. I moved out of the sql directoy I had landed on.

So I moved back to the /etc/nsm dir and was able to run things. Not sure why on that but for whatever reason it is..

root@secops-desktop:/etc/nsm# nsm --server --status
Status: securityonion
* sguil server [ OK ]

so now I am able to launch this...but under the localhost:3000 I am still unable to see anything happening.

sensors are still showing no love:

root@secops-desktop:/etc/nsm# nsm --sensor --status
Status: HIDS
* ossec_agent (sguil) [ FAIL ]

squil seems to come up fine...

root@secops-desktop:/etc/nsm# nsm_server_ps-status
Status: securityonion
* sguil server [ OK ]
root@secops-desktop:/etc/nsm# nsm_server_ps-restart
Restarting: securityonion
* stopping: sguil server [ OK ]
* starting: sguil server [ OK ]

ossec agent seems to come alive..

root@secops-desktop:/etc/nsm# nsm_sensor_ps-status
Status: HIDS
* ossec_agent (sguil) [ FAIL ]
root@secops-desktop:/etc/nsm# nsm_sensor_ps-start
Starting: HIDS
* starting: ossec_agent (sguil)
==> /var/log/nsm/ossec_agent.log <==
[ OK ]
root@secops-desktop:/etc/nsm# nsm_sensor_ps-status
Status: HIDS
* ossec_agent (sguil)

the logs are lovin me like this:
Feb 2 12:00:01 secops-desktop CRON[5117]: (root) CMD ( date >> /var/log/nsm/watchdog.log ; /usr/local/sbin/nsm_sensor_ps-restart --if-stale >> /var/log/nsm/watchdog.log)
Feb 2 12:00:01 secops-desktop CRON[5119]: (root) CMD (/usr/local/bin/broctl cron)
Feb 2 12:00:01 secops-desktop CRON[5121]: (root) CMD ([ -d /var/lib/mysql/securityonion_db/ ] && /usr/bin/php -e /var/www/squert/.inc/ip2c.php 1 > /dev/null 2>&1)
Feb 2 12:00:01 secops-desktop CRON[5120]: (root) CMD (/usr/local/sbin/nsm_sensor_clean -y >> /var/log/nsm/sensor-clean.log)

currently on the server piece nothing really much is running...the autossh is running on both slaves and appears to be dumping...I must be missing something...

Any help would be a God send.

Hi Jason,

Your "server" is just a "server" and not a "sensor", correct? If that's the case, then the output you're seeing is correct. If you run "nsm_server_ps-status" on one of the "sensor" boxes, do you see processes there?

Hope that helps! If not, let's continue this discussion on the mailing list.


Jason Boss said...

Your an earlier riser! Must be after some worms! Thanks for the reply!

From the server:

root@secops:~# nsm_server_ps-status
Status: securityonion
* sguil server

On both of the sensor boxes nothing comes up when I do this...

the database does appear to be getting larger...but snorby is campin out with no sensors in there at all...

Doug Burks said...

I meant to say "nsm_sensor_ps-status" on the sensor boxes.

Blog comments are not really conducive to troubleshooting, so please join our mailing list and send an email to continue this process.
