Hi All,

I had one query regarding MCAS Log Collector Deployment is that how can I ensure the high availability for the server to be deployed on premises

Hello @Rhul1545!


There's no official "Disaster Recovery" plan for our Log Collector or the Docker Containers that they're hosted on. 


The Log Collector simply parses the data and relays it to MCAS endpoint. There is a backup directory that just shows what has been uploaded to MCAS; but, it's just for troubleshooting purposes, really. If the Collector goes down, you can simply resend the Syslogs that were missed during the outage and MCAS will be updated or you can create a snapshot report for the missed Syslog entries and manually update the portal that way. 

Does our internal Log Collectors have an external IP address that is used when sending the information to MCAS?
