Look at the /etc/syslog.conf and look for the entry:


# Added for Cisco Syslog Analyzer (begin)

local7.info /var/log/syslog_info

# Added for Cisco Syslog Analyzer (end)


You can make your changes here to the location and make sure to do a HUP on the syslogd process after changing.

Beyond changing /etc/syslog.conf, you will have to tell RME where to look for the new syslog message file. This is done by running:


NMSROOT/bin/perl NMSROOT/bin/syslogConf.pl


When dmgtd is shutdown.

Thanks for information.


I have changed my syslog.conf and now all is ok.

Before my file which store syslog information was defined like: /var/log/cw2k.log (I don't know why).

BTW. I studied manual and I found inforation that most of RME's syslog information is stored in $NMSROOT/MDC/tomcat/webapps/rme/WEB-INF/classes/com/cisco/nm/rmeng/csc/data/Collector.properties

Correct, Collector.properties is the location for all the SyslogCollector's configuration. However, the syslogConf.pl script was added in LMS 2.6 to avoid having to edit Collector.properties directly.
