The log level has been set in offdm for your CSS.

You need to boot into offdm and change the logging level there.

From the CSS prompt type "reboot".

When you see the line "do you want ..." press "Y".

Once in offdm, press " + t" to enter technical mode.

Then press "1" to enter configuration mode

Then "3" for Set logging flags

Then "2" Set Logging level.

Hello HS,

If your running-config shows all logging at 4, but you are still seeing higher level logs in the sys.log file, then you might need to check your offline diagnositcs log settings and set them to 4 there.

Setting Logging Level in Offline Diagnositcs

  1. Reboot and interrupt the boot going into offDM.
  2. shift T (technicians menu).
  3. choose "1" for configure.
  4. then "3" for set logging flags.
  5. "2" for set logging level (set to level 4).
  6. then "r" until you're back to the main menu.
  7. reboot.

Hope that helps,
