  • 1.  cann't apply syslog server

    Posted 03-02-2017 11:04
    I'm trying to apply a syslog server with netsight. This isn't possible. I've got an error 2 (bad OID or instance).

    Netsight version: 7.0.9.4

    Issue with several type of switches. (X250, X440 and X460)

    X670 isn't supported at all.

    How to resolve this.

    Hi Johan,

    could you post a syslog-config from one of your switches?
    I stumbled over the fact, that the default format-string contains the hostname as sender and not the IP.
    NetSight needs the IP to process the syslogs, see: https://community.extremenetworks.com/extreme/topics/netsight-syslog-source-ip-is-missing

    Best Regards

    configure syslog add 10.2.112.1:514 vr VR-Default local0
    enable log target syslog 10.2.112.1:514 vr VR-Default local0
    configure log target syslog 10.2.112.1:514 vr VR-Default local0 filter DefaultFilter severity Error
    configure log target syslog 10.2.112.1:514 vr VR-Default local0 match Any
    configure log target syslog 10.2.112.1:514 vr VR-Default local0 format timestamp seconds date dd-mm-yyyy event-name none host-name tag-id tag-name
