    Configuring the Syslog Service on a HP-UX/Solaris/AIX Device

    1. Login as root user.

    2. Edit the syslog.conf file in the /etc directory as shown below.
    3. *.emerg;*.alert;*.crit;*.err;*.warning;*.notice;*.info;*.debug<tab-separation>@<ela_server_name>

      where <ela_server_name> is the name of the machine where EventLog Analyzer is running. Ensure that there is only a tab separation in between *.debug and @<ela_server_name>.

      Note: For a Solaris device, it is enough to include *.debug<tab-separation>@<ela_server_name> in the syslog.conf file.

    4. Save the configuration and exit the editor.
    5. Edit the services file in the /etc directory.
    6. Change the syslog service port number to 514, which is one of the default listener of EventLog Analyzer. But if you choose a different port other than 514 then remember to enter that same port when adding the device in EventLog Analyzer.
    7. Start the syslog daemon on the OS with the appropriate command:
    8. (for HP-UX) /sbin/init.d/syslogd start
      (for Solaris) /etc/init.d/syslog start
      (for Solaris 10) svcadm -v restart svc:/system/system-log:default
      (for IBM AIX) startsrc -s syslogd
