EMC 8.0.3 syslog received in /var/log/syslog file, but now shown in OneView or console

Userlevel 3
Hi, I've got in my demokit environment a strange problem.
My EMC for some time has worked well as syslog server, but not despite the fact that I see the syslog messages correctly received in the /var/log/syslog file

in the Oneview page or in console, these messages are not shown.
If I made a tcpdump on EMC interface where receive the syslog messages, I see these message:

and with netstat -na I see the port 514 correctly open and the syslog process is running.
I've also tried to made a backup of the EMC server and to install a new one and restore the previous configurations, but the problem still remain.
How I can debug this problem more in deep for resolve it?

Hi Bharathiraja,
I've found the problem was infact due to an error setting in the syslog alarm manager where the path were set to /var/log/messages instead to /var/log/syslog

The strange is why tis path is changed for some reason (for several time the syslog has worked without problem).
