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!
