Cloud Collector Beta Caveats

Both Windows and Linux

After the first logon to Open-AudIT Cloud Collector, the collector should be setup as requested, however the user will be redirected back to the logon screen. Logon again to see the Collector details. This will be fixed for the production release.


IMPORTANT - Make sure you install Nmap.

After logging on to Collector, log on to and go to menu → Admin → Collectors → List Collectors. Click the Details button for your new Collector. Edit the field for "network address" and replace with the correct IP address of your Collector. It's internal (to your network) IP. For example,


When installing the Cloud Collector on Linux, the file below (it is a text file) must be modified and relevant attributes set, then the omkd daemon restarted - BEFORE logging in to Open-AudIT Cloud Collector. This will be fixed for the production release.


Code Block
'auth_login_motd' => 'Logon using your credentials.',
'auth_method_1' => 'openaudit',
'auth_method_2' => '',
'auth_method_3' => '',

'omkd_require_nmis' => 'false',
'load_applications' => ['Open-AudIT'],

'oae_type' => 'cloud_collector',

Cloud Collector Troubleshooting

If your Cloud Collector does not register, edit the below file (it is a text file).

Linux - /usr/local/omk/conf/opCommon.nmis

Windows - c:\omk\conf\opCommon.nmis

Change the below attributes -

'omk_log_level' => 'debug',
'oae_debug_level' => 2,

Restart the service "omkd".

Attempt to logon again (bearing in mind the above caveat that you wil be redirected to the logon screen and have to relogin). Now check the log files at:

Linux - /usr/local/omk/log/open-audit.log and /usr/local/omk/auth.log

Windows - c:\omk\log\open-audit.log and c:\omk\log\auth.log

NOTE - The support team will most likely ask for a copy of all *.log files in that directory when troubleshooting.
