cann't apply syslog server


Userlevel 4
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
