Configuring the UNIX data collector

The Control Compliance Suite can use Symantec RMS to retrieve data from your enterprise network. RMS passes the collected data to the Data Processing Service (DPS) Collector. The collector then returns the collected data to the Control Compliance Suite infrastructure for further processing. RMS uses the bv-Control for UNIX snap-in module to collect data from the UNIX computers.

The Control Compliance Suite uses the UNIX data collector to collect data from RMS. Before you use the UNIX data collector on the DPS computer, you must configure this data collector. The UNIX data collector must be associated with an Information Server.

To configure the UNIX data collector, you open the Component Settings dialog box for the Data Processing Service computer. You can also reconfigure or make modifications to the UNIX data collector through this dialog box.
