Ability to Set SSL=yes when installing windows agent with MSI

Currently unable to set SSL=yes when using the command line parameters. It is possible to set all the other important parameters, protocol, host, port but not SSL. This is especially important if your LI servers need to be set to SSL only.


Yes you could create a MST but this is a rather complicated solution to a simple problem.

Log Insight Agent - send logs to multiple different destinations

Resize existing Log Insight disks

It would be very handy if we could resize an already added disk (enlarge it). Login insight should then at a reboot resize the volume and start using the extra space! This works with new disks, but resizing existing disks is not supported today.

Support globs for filelog directory option in Windows Agent

The agent should support globs (asterisk and wildcard) for folders. THe use case is IIS where multiple domains exist on the same server. Something like this


directory= E:\sitecoredata\*\Data\logs


So then I could make one that does them all type thing.


Globs are supported for files so this is an inconsistency in the product as well.
