Using syslog with VRF

Unanswered Question
Jul 29th, 2009


I've got a cisco 3825 and I would like to send syslog messages to a server located into a VRF with a loopback1 as source-interface.

The problem is when I want to set up the loopback1 as source-interface I got this error message :

"Interface Loopback1 is not in the global table"


How can I set up this loopback1 as the source-interface even if this one is into a VRF?.

Best Regards


I have this problem too.

Hello Nicolas,

check if the command has a vrf option before specifying the server ip address.

if there is specify the VRF name where the loop1 is placed and then the loop1 name

Hope to help

Hello Laurent,

I was meaning something like:

logging host vrf


like in the document you have linked


you're right the command above allows to specify a destination for syslog messages in a VRF context, OP asked about choicing a source.

Hope to help
