centralize log server

OS: SLES 10 SP2 x86_64

our auditors ask us to configure one SLES 10 machine as a Central Logging server for 7 other SLES 10 machines... i.e all other sles 10 machines send their logs(/var/log/messages, /var/log/boot.msg) to a central log server(sles10).

I have no idea .. please help me to configure the centralize log server and log clients.

any help will be highly appreciated

Regards

This is very easy - see document here http://www.linux.com/feature/57220

After setting this configure and logrotate to rotate your logs.
