Hi Dennis,

 

Can we forward to 2 syslog servers at a time ?

From syslogd(1m) examples it appears you copy the entry:

*.emerg @Admin1

*.emerg @admin2

Re: configure syslog logs to forward to remote server.

The syslog daemon reads each line in syslog.conf and applies that rule to the incoming message. You can create multiple actions for the same facility and priority such as saving the message in several logfiles or sending to multiple remote syslog servers. Just duplicate the line and change the destination server name. REMEMBER: no spaces allowed for rules, only tabs may be used for white space.
