Scheduled Maintenance:Windows Servers

Status Type

Scheduled Maintenance

Date and Time

Thursday, June 6, 2019 - 10:00 to Monday, August 5, 2019 - 10:00

Reason

As part of the Security 2.0 projects to bring systems on the UCSF network up to minimum security standards, UCSF IT will be installing a Syslog-NG centralized logging and monitoring agent on all Windows and Linux servers.

Impact

The Windows agent will send copies of all Application, Security and System logs to UCSF Syslog-NG servers for retention and analysis. The Linux agent will send logs of all sudo activity and commands, or Linux server admins can choose to send these logs directly to the Syslog-NG server.
