Configure winlogbeat to send logs to cluster

recently I have installed in my lab cluster ELK 7. Now I'd like to send events from Windows to ELK. How properly should I configure winlogbeat?

  # Array of hosts to connect to.
  hosts: ["",""]

Is it proper configuration?

hi @zen.xen, there are multiple configuration options here, I strongly suggest having a look at and on the configuration steps and the basic winlogbeat.yml sample.

For example, in the winlogbeat.event_logs section, you will have to specify the event logs you want to monitor. It seems that at least one event log must be configured as part of event_logs. Example below:

  - name: Application
  - name: Security
  - name: System

You might want to add some logging configuration as well, or if elasticsearch is secured, username and password should be added, etc.
If you encounter any issues while configuring winlogbeat, please provide us with the content of the winlogbeat.yml file and the exception/stack trace.

I configured options in winlogbeat, it works, but like I mentioned in my previous post, I have 2-node cluster, node-01: and node-02:, the section output looks like this:

  # Array of hosts to connect to.
  hosts: ["",""]

is it correct?
