Hey everybody,

I'm setting up a 7050 with a log forwarding card to a dedicated log collector and we have on top of that Panorama VM - Management only .  On the log collector, I have it set to device log collection and collector group communication on ethernet1/9.  I have log settings configured as well as a log forwarding profile.  

now I add the panorama to the expedition and I retrieve the devices, what I need is how to export the Firewall logs to the expedition like other firewall like PA 5220 for example, that store the logs locally and there is an option for scheduler export log and configure the SCP to send the logs on daily base to expedition and I can analyze the logs.


As I know The Log Forwarding Card (LFC) is that forwards all dataplane logs (traffic and threat for example) from the firewall to one or more external logging systems, such as Panorama or a syslog server. Because the dataplane logs are no longer available on the local firewall.


How can get these logs to expedition on daily bases to analyze it, because I have multiple vsys on 7050.


I appreciate your support.

Hi @hfarajallah  Please refer the module 4 - Import traffic logs into Expedition in the below video playlist , there are different methods for traffic log import , for example, one of the method is to make expedition as syslog server.
