OneView syslog

Does OneView have the ability to forward its logs to a syslog server?  There is a "Enable-HPOVRemoteSyslog" powershell command but the documentation is pretty vague on actual usage.

Yes, starting the new V4.20 release (which just started shipping within the last several weeks). The feature allows you to forward the OneView audit logs to a remote syslog server. 

The powershell command is for a older feature that's has been in OneView from early on. That feature configures specific managed devices (e..g. iLO, OAs, some ICMs) to forward their syslogs to a remote syslog server.

Re: OneView syslog

Hello Peter,

thanks for sharing this interesting news.

Any plans to implement forwarding of all events and activities and not audit logs only?

Having auditing events captured externaly is a good start from a compliance point of view but having OneView's deep integration into the HPE hardware environment as source for getting hardware events into syslog would be really great.

Regards,

Daniel

Re: OneView syslog

Most all HW events are forward today as SNMP traps (not via syslog). Those are the specific events from the managed devices. For the OneView alerts in general, there is the State Change Message Bus (and AMPQ-based message bus). You'd need a 'connector' to listen on the bus and place the data in syslog (or splunk or whatever). You could check in the OneView section of HPE's github to see if anyone has developed a canned integration for that. For example, https://github.com/HewlettPackard/oneview-redfish-toolkit look like it does some of what you are after.

Hello Peter,

thanks for your sugestion - will have a look into this.

A native syslog implementation would still be highly apreciated.

Re: OneView syslog

Am I wrong or are the audit logs not in proper syslog format?  I can forward to our syslog server but because the hostname is not included with each log it does not know how to classify it.  Any way to add the name of the oneview appliance to the audit log?

Re: OneView syslog

Is there a place I need to enter the hostname in order for the audit log to pick it up properly?

Re: OneView syslog

Looks like the forwarded syslog entry is using the appliance's internal  hostname (ci-<appliance MAC address>) and not the user-configured appliance hostname.

Re: OneView syslog

Can this be modified in any way?  I'm not seeing any name in my logs.
