Forwarding the syslog to another server on network

quinta-feira, 25 de outubro de 2012

I'm using a linux to receive my logs for this explanation.

usually the syslog conf path for syslog on linux is /etc/sysconfig/syslog (red hat for example)
Setup the syslog on linux with the bellow options:

*.* /var/adm/messages

Refresh the syslog
# kill -HUP syslogPid

Setup the syslog on HP-UX with the bellow options:
syslog conf path: /etc/syslog.conf
*.debug @LogServer

Get the syslog pid to refresh the process:
ps -ef | grep syslog

# kill -HUP syslogPid
