DTIHosts can be edited using any text file editor. For example: For Windows 2003: edit [ESM directory]&backslash;bin&backslash;inw3s-ix86DTIHosts For Windows 2000 : edit [ESM directory]&backslash;bin&backslash;inw2k-ix86DTIHosts...

When the ALERT profile is delivered the profile is set to never expire, therefore a parameter must have been changed at some point. Please contact your DetectIT Technical Engineer and request the procedures for resetting ALERT.

This error has been seen in situations where the backup process locks files in the Safestone @* libraries, but another DetectIT process tries to access the same file.

This is normally because the DetectIT subsystems have not been ended....

The register command is located in the sub-directory containing the executables for the "native" ESM agent. The defaults are: For Windows 2003: [ESM directory]&backslash;bin&backslash;inw3s-ix86 For Windows 2000: [ESM directory]&...

Use the register command shipped with the ESM software. The following command string must be executed on the proxy agent:

register -A -x [agent] -X AS/400 -b as400 -m [manager] -U [user] -P [password]

In order for the job to stay active the following conditions must be satisfied: The DetectIT Security Audit and Detection module must be licensed on your IBM i A TCP/IP port must be assigned to the ESM server job

This can be done as follows:

DetectIT Native

Sign on to the IBM i using the ALERT profile. Execute the command WRKDTITCP. To assign the TCP/IP port, select F6 = Add. Enter option "1″ against product "ESM". Enter the...

There are a couple of common reasons why this could be occurring. Please check the following: Ensure that the correct TCP/IP port number is assigned to the ESM 'product' on the IBM i Is there a firewall installed that may be restricting...

Sun Solaris

[Intruder Alert directory]/bin/solaris-sparc-as400



It is not recommended that you use the IBM i command for this, because the DetectIT process performs some housekeeping functions too. For example the Safestone function removes redundant DetectIT jobs and updates a number of parameters. Either...

Within the “Post Filter Screening” option in the Security Audit and Detection module you can define rules which will cause matching events to be omitted from the reports. You can filter using global rules (i.e. affecting all reports...
