Is there somewhere in the controller confg that I can enable debugging for a client and send the logs to my syslog server?? Currently I debug clients while logged into the controller CLI but I would much rather tail my syslog for the logs if possible.

In all WLC versions prior to Version 5.0, only one syslog server can be configured. In order to configure the syslog server with the CLI, enter this command from the WLC CLI:

config syslog {ip-address}

Thanks for the reply,

I've got the controller sending logs to the syslog server no problems there. What I'd like to do is instead of running an ssh session to the controller and debugging a client and watching it, I'd to send that client debug to the syslog server if possible?

Go to Management -> Logs -> Configs and choose your Syslog Level to Debugging.
