Syslog redirection on DNS/DHCP Server - BlueCat Address Manager - 9.2.0

Address Manager Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Address Manager

BAM allows you to set syslog (system log) redirection from the BAM 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 DNS/DHCP Server. DNS/DHCP Server filters the content that is written to the local syslog file.

Note: The syslog server must be configured to listen on UDP port 514. This is the default port number.

To configure syslog redirection on a managed BDDS:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  3. Under Servers, click a server name. The Details tab for the server opens.
  4. Click the server name menu and select Service Configuration.
  5. From the Service Type drop-down menu, select Syslog. BAM queries the server and returns the current values for the service settings.
  6. Under General Settings, set the following parameters:
    • Syslog Server—enter the 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.
  7. Click Update.
