Implementing a Data Rollup from a Secondary Console to a Primary Console

Version 10

    Purpose

     

    The purpose of this document is to provide configuration steps to enable a data rollup from your secondary console(s) to a primary console.

     

    This can be very useful for obtaining patches from scan results in an offline environment. This process is explained more thoroughly in this document Configuring consoles between a online and offline environment to obtain definitions & patches from a common distribution…. You can also use a data rollup configuration if you would like to manage results from multiple consoles in one location for reporting purposes.

     

    The following figure illustrates a data rollup console configuration.

    Overview

     

    1. On your primary console, make sure the IP address of the primary console is listed in the Console Alias Editor by going to Tools > Console alias editor.  Add the IP address if necessary, then click Update to apply the change. The primary console will close automatically to apply this update.

    After implementing this configuration, you will be able to see the results from the secondary console in View > Results of the primary console after the specified amount of time that you set in step 3. You will also be able to report against the results in Tools > Create Report from the Primary Console.
