 1. Forwarding Syslog Messages from UNIX/Linux Devices

 Zenoss has its own syslog server, zensyslog. Managed devices should point their syslog daemons to the system. To do this, edit the /etc/syslog.conf file and add an entry, where 1.2.3.4 is the zensyslog IP:

  1. Log on to the target device (as a super user).

  2. Open /etc/syslog.conf file with a text editor (such as vi).

  3. Enter *.debug and press the Tab key. Then enter the host name or IP address of the server. For example:

    *.debug @192.168.X.X
  4. Save the file and exit the file editor program.

  5. Restart the Syslog service using the command below:

    /etc/init.d/syslog restart
