Scheduled Log Export - Permission Denied

L2 Linker

So i have follwoed all the guides and posts i can find about changing the permissions and what not but i keep getting this error when i setup the scheduled log exports on one of my firewalls.

 

Error response from server: bash: /PALogs/ssh-export-test.txt: Permission denied

try adjusting the permissions on the '/PALogs' on your Expedition server. 

 

$sudo chmod -R /PALogs

 

Try the scheduled log export test again.

I've similar issue encountered. However error messages were different.

 

May I check whether above permission define on Paloalto or remote destination (NAS) ?

 

 

 

@Nainghsy the account you used needs to have write permission the /PALogs folder on the Expedition VM , if not, you can change the /PALogs folder permission to allow any to write. 

@lychiang I don't quiet understand here. Actually I'm trying to export out the logs to remote destination (NAS). In order to do that the user account that I used must have write privilege for source folder so called Expedition VM instead of destination folder? Correct me If i'm wrong. Many thanks!

@Nainghsy What's your use case, are you trying to export the firewall traffic log from firewall or you trying to export the traffic log from expedition to your server?

@lychiang I'm trying to export the firewall traffic log from firewall to another destination of shared drive (NAS).
