Product name
BlueCat Integrity

This task describes how to add querylogging channels.

You must enable querylogging prior to adding a querylogging channel.

When you create a querylogging channel, you must specify the mandatory parameters:

  • a channel name
  • a name for the channel log file
  • the maximum number of versions of the file to create
  • a file size (in MB)
  • a severity level
  • a message category

You must also specify whether the logging system should mark each entry with its time, severity level, and category.

To add a querylogging channel:

  1. Log in to the DNS/DHCP Server Administration Console as the administrator. For more information on default login credential, refer to BlueCat default login credentials (you must be authenticated to view this topic).
  2. From Main Session mode, type configure querylogging and press ENTER.
  3. Type add channel <channelname> and press ENTER.
    The prompt changes to indicate you are now within the newly created channel.
  4. Type add <category> and press ENTER. For complete list of available channel categories, refer to Available channel categories for querylogging. To add multiple categories to the log file, repeat this step.
  5. Type set file <filename>.txt and press ENTER.
  6. Type save and press ENTER. The Administration Console saves your settings.
