Setting up dedicated log collector

L2 Linker

I am setting up a new M100 as a dedicated log collector, and wanted to share a day of frustration with a resolution.... After following the Panorama guide for setup, I was unable to see the Disks in the Disk tab under Managed Collectors on the Panorama management server to enable the disks.  I've tried manually editing the fields but it does not take.  When commiting changes to Panorama I get following warning message - "No disks enabled on log collector".  In addition, the new dedicated log collector does not show as connected in the Managed Collectors screen, but it does show connected in Managed Devices.


When I SSH to the dedicated log collector, disk space and raid seem to indicate everything is there -

admin@dc2log> show system disk-space

Solution -

The dedicated log collector should not be in the Managed Devices section.  Removing the dedicated log collector from Managed Devices, enables it for Managed Collectors and disks can be selected.
