More than one Log Server is installed for a Policy Server
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
Each Policy Server instance can connect to only one instance of Log Server. When multiple instances of Log Server attempt to connect to the same Policy Server, log data is not recorded properly, causing problems with multiple reporting tools.
To resolve this issue:

If you would like to configure multiple Log Server instances to communicate with a central Log Server that is responsible for recording data in the Log Database, see Extending your web protection deployment in the Deployment and Installation Center.

In all of these cases, the safest way to address the problem is:

3.
Navigate to the bin directory (C:\Program Files\Websense\Web Security\bin or /opt/Websense/bin) and make a backup copy of config.xml in another location. Do not skip this step.
4.
Open the original config.xml file in a basic text editor (not an XML or HTML editor).
5.
<container name="WebsenseLogServer">
6.
<container name="WebsenseLogServer">
<data name="0c65012f-93af-11e1-8616-f215ee9c7d9d">10.201.136.34</data>
</container>
7.
Save and close the config.xml file.
8.
Delete the config.xml.bak file from the bin directory.
