8.3.0

Address Manager allows you to set syslog (system log) redirection from the Address Manager user interface by adding an IPv4 or IPv6 address for one or more syslog redirection servers. The top-most server will be queried first.

When configuring syslog redirection, the content of the redirected syslog file might be more verbose than the content of the syslog file written locally on Address Manager. Address Manager filters the content that is written to the local syslog file.

Note: The syslog server must be configured to listen on UDP port 514.

To configure syslog redirection on the Address Manager server:

  1. Select the Administration tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Administration page.
  2. Under General, click Service Configuration.
  3. From the Service Type drop-down menu, select Syslog.
    Attention: If you have upgraded from Address Manager v3.7.x, you will receive the following warning message:
    • This service has been set to Override. Any update to the service will overwrite the existing service configuration with the settings added in the user interface.

    Modifying the current service configuration will disable the Service Configuration Override and overwrite the existing .conf file with the new values and settings.

    Click Cancel to preserve the service configuration files maintained during the upgrade from Address Manager v3.7.x.

  4. Under General Settings, set the following parameters:
    • Syslog Server—enter the IPv4 or IPv6 address for a syslog server and click Add. The syslog server appears in the list. To remove a server, select it from the list and click Remove. The top-most syslog server will be queried first, then the second, and so on down the list.
  5. Click Update.
