Install vCloud Director content pack from Menu Icon -> Content Packs -> Marketplace

Add a filter to get logs from vCD cells by either entering vCD cells hostname or IP’s and click on SAVE NEW GROUP
Download and Install Log Insight Agent on each vCD Cells
To download: Menu Icon -> Administration -> Agents -> At the bottom of the page you would see download option
Copy the downloaded agent to vCD Cell’s /tmp location using any file client like WinSCP
Install the agent,
Command: rpm -U VMware-Log-Insight-Agent-4.5.0-5626690.noarch_10.109.26.113.rpm
Configure the installed Log Insight agent to send logs to Log Insight.
- The hostname of log insight will be already present, since we downloaded the agent from log insight itself.
- Uncomment proto=cfapi
- Append configuration to liagent.ini file from Menu Icon -> Installed Content Packs -> VMware -vCloud Director -> Agent Groups -> From configuration row
Restart the liagent service: service liagentd restart
Verify your configuration. Go to Menu icon -> Administration -> Agents -> Select your Agents group you created and see the events received
