Configuring CCS Agents for message based data collection
If you are using the CCS Agent for message based data collection, you must install the application modules and security content on CCS Managers and CCS Agents. You must first install the platform specific application modules and security content on the CCS Agents and then import the security content to the respective CCS Manager using the importcontent utility. The security content consists of the security module(.m) files, property files, template files, word files and report content (UpdatePackage.rdl) files for security updates as well as application modules. A new folder named, Content is created on the CCS Manager that contains platform-specific data, which the importcontent utility imports.
To configure the CCS Agents for message based data collection
If you want to use predefined CCS message based content for evaluating Windows and UNIX assets, only perform steps 1, 4 and 6.
If you want to import security content on CCS Manager during the installation of the security content, you can modify the importcontent.conf file, to include or exclude platforms that are available to the CCS Manager when using the importcontent utility.
For Windows and UNIX platforms, ensure that corresponding standards of the predefined CCS message based content are installed on the CCS Application Server, corresponding policies are installed on the CCS Manager and content is installed on the CCS Agent. You can use the CCS Content installer to install content on the CCS Application Server and CCS Manager. For CCS Agent, you can install content during the agent installation. For the list of predefined msg based content shipped with CCS 11.1, See Predefined CCS message based content for Windows and UNIX.
For other platforms such as SQL, Oracle, DB2, Sybase, or VMware, or for creating custom policies for Windows and UNIX, you must create the policies using the ESM Console, and then run the ESM Policy to CCS Standard Migration Utility, to map the ESM policies to CCS standards. See the About the Symantec ESM Policy to CCS Standard Migration Utility section in the Symantec Control Compliance Suite User Guide.
Configure the application modules on CCS Agent for data collection
For information on configuring the application modules, refer to the specific application module documentation located inside the ESM Components\Documentation folder of the product media.
Run the Import assets and agents job to create agent-based assets. See the Importing assets and agents section in the Symantec Control Compliance Suite User Guide.
