You can configure up to two external syslog servers to receive and save syslog events. You must configure a remote syslog server to save syslog records.
Follow these steps:
  1. Go to
    Configuration
    ,
    Logs
    ,
    Syslog
    .
  2. Select the 
    Enable
     syslog to the specified server checkbox to configure syslog servers.
  3. In the 
    Remote Server
     text box, specify the IP addresses of up to two servers, which are separated by a pipe (
    |
    ) character.  For example: 192.0.2.34 | 192.0.2.35
  4. Optionally, specify a
    Remote Port
     value for the remote syslog servers. If you configure two syslog destinations, both must use the same port. If you leave the port blank, it defaults to 514.
  5. Click
    Update
    to save your settings and activate the servers.
If you change the
Remote Port
value, you must do one of the following procedures after applying that change (as appropriate for your environment):
  • Standalone appliance
    : Restart the appliance.
  • Clustered environment
    1. Stop the cluster.
    2. Restart each node that is connected to a syslog server.
    3. Start the cluster.
If you change your settings, but you do not update them, return to the previous settings by selecting 
Reset
. This action does not return the settings to a default.
