so-import-evtx will import one or more evtx files into Security Onion.


You can run this command manually, but for most use cases it’s easier to upload an evtx file via Grid and it will automatically run so-import-evtx for you.


Run sudo so-import-evtx and supply the full path to at least one evtx file. For example, to import a single evtx file named import.evtx:

sudo so-import-evtx /full/path/to/import.evtx

To import multiple evtx files:

sudo so-import-evtx /full/path/to/import2.evtx /full/path/to/import2.evtx

so-import-evtx then provides a hyperlink for you to view all logs in Security Onion Console (SOC).
