ELSA VMware Appliance Available

Peter over at Balabit has graciously offered a place to host a VM for ELSA.  You can download it at http://spike2.fa.gau.hu/~mcholste/elsa_vm.tar.gz .  It is a fully-functional ELSA installation running on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.  It will start all necessary services to begin recording and viewing logs and provides a good way to see what ELSA is all about without a major time investment.  Please note that performance-wise, a VM will not be ideal, but it should be enough for interested readers to get a look at what ELSA can do.  The user name for the VM is "elsa" and pass is "biglog" .  I've included an SVN update script in the tarball now, so if you want to make sure the ELSA installation is current, you can run /usr/local/elsa/contrib/update_from_svn.sh and then execute "service elsa restart."  Please let me know if you run into any issues or have any comments!

  1. Thanks for offering such a kick-ass system!

    Just a note that might be worth mentioning, the VM is 64bits, so not working on 32bits CPUs.

  2. Is there an update mirror link?

  3. No, the VM is deprecated now because it's so easy to install normally. Just grab an Ubuntu server ISO image (or any Linux/FreeBSD), and run the normal installation. It's entirely automated.
