Devices.xml FILE

The Devices.xml file contains specific information about all the devices on the local network that will send SNMP trap messages to the Aurora Gateway. The Devices.xml file is automatically created the first time the service is started.

When a device sends a trap to the gateway, Aurora will query the Devices.xml file for a record based on the local (LAN) IP address of the device. 

If no record exists for the device IP address it will be created automatically and sent using the default SNMP trap destination and default WebService URL.

The Devices.xml file is located 


C:\Program Files\Aurora\Aurora Gateway\Devices.xml


C:\Program Files (x86)\Aurora\Aurora Gateway\Devices.xml


Aurora stores logging information in the following files:


C:\Program Files\Aurora\Aurora Gateway\Logs\


C:\Program Files (x86)\Aurora\Aurora Gateway\Logs\

EventLog-MM-DD-YYYY.log - Event Log file

Error.log  - Error Log file

The Event Log filename has the following format: EventLog<YYYY-MM-DD>.log 

A new event log file is created for each day and the Log filename is prefixed with a date string. 

If Aurora cannot find its configuration files, it will recreate default versions of the files.
