Discussion:
audispd stopping on distribute-network = yes
(too old to reply)

Situation:

Have 3 VMs all running RHEL7.6 (3.10.0-933.el7.x86_64) with audit
components 2.8.4, including audisp-plugins. Using the audisp-remote plugin,

Machine A -> B

Machine B -> C

Problem 1:

If I enable "distribute_network = yes" on Machine B, audispd (and
children) stops.

No anom_abend, no message in syslog, no audit event I can identify as a
clue.


Problem 2:

If I disable the distribute_network, the audispd and audisp-remote work
fine.
If I reboot Machine B, Machine A now doesn't auto-reconnect. I thought
we had addressed these reconnect issues a ways back?

Thanks in advance for any advice,

LCB

Looks like, with preliminary testing, that maybe this problem is
restricted to the RAW data format.
I noticed that my machines were set to RAW; once changed to ENRICHED it
does work.
Since I plan on only using enriched, it really doesn't matter too much
to me. Raw settings but forwarding events probably doesn't make a lot of
sense anyway.

Thx,
