How to setup a syslog server using the MGMT interface
03/26/2020 10 13738
I want to use the dedicated MGMT port for connectivity to my syslog server.
1. Enable the Out of Band Management on MGMT port option via System | Administration
NOTE - enabling this option requires a firewall reboot. Please arrange a suitable maintenance window.
2. Ensure your syslog server has an IP address in the same network as your MGMT interface. Check this under Network | Interfaces
3. Enter your syslog server details under Log | Syslog
Your syslog messages as configured in Log | Settings will now be sent to your syslog server via the MGMT port
