AlienVault® USM Anywhere™

USM Anywhere Setup on the Hyper-V Virtual Machine

Following the deployment, there is some configuration required within the console on the virtual machine. After this initial configuration, you use the USM Anywhere web UI to further configure the sensor, and all other sensors that you connect to USM Anywhere.

During the installation, the USM Anywhere Sensor acquires the initial IP address through the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCPNetwork protocol used to dynamically distribute network configuration parameters, such as IP addresses, for interfaces and services.). If DHCP is not enabled, you must set the IP address manually. AT&T Cybersecuritystrongly recommends assigning a static IP address to the USM Anywhere Sensor as a best practice. This allows for proper log forwarding and network architecture.

Perform these initial configuration tasks on the Hyper-V virtual machine, using the console.
