Hello, everyone!

I have 460-G2 switch with 16.2 EXOS.

The problem is I can't configure syslog, using this article:


Everything works fine in 15x EXOS, but not in 16.x. In 15x using the settings from article mentioned above I get all required info in syslog: ports' status and almost all the events.

In 16x I don't receive anything. The syslog server is the same (kiwi).

However, after "enable cli-config-logging" command I get copies of commands entered to syslog.

How can I fix the issue?

The syslog settings in X460-G2 (EXOS 16.2) configuration are:

configure syslog add vr VR-Default local0enable log target syslog vr VR-Default local0
configure log target syslog vr VR-Default local0 filter DefaultFilter severity Info
configure log target syslog vr VR-Default local0 match Any
configure log target syslog vr VR-Default local0 format timestamp seconds date Mmm-dd event-name none priority host-name tag-name

The first thing I want to get is mac-locking events!

Could you please help me?

Many thanks in advance,

HI Ilya,

Considering that the log messages related to the CLI configuration are sent to the syslog server, I am assuming that the syslog configuration is working fine.
I believe the filter used "default filter" is optimized. To confirm this, can you please share the complete output of the command, "show configuration ems"

looking forward to your response.
