Syslog messages not making to server

I have noticed that all my Cisco4500 have stopped logging to syslog server. It worked until couple weeks ago, we did change the management IP on them which I updated it but I still do not see anything in the syslog. I have automated action job set and I get nothing, when i view syslog_info no messages logged there either, I also checked dameons.log and dmgtd.log but nothing found, do you know where syslog messages would be going then and how to fix this? I'm on Solaris 10 with LMS2.6.



Re: Syslog messages not making to server

Does "show logging" report "logging to [syslog-server-ip-addr]" on the 4500s?

Assuming you have root access on Solaris, does "snoop -v -s 514 -t a -d [interface-ciscoworks-listens-on] [one-of-the-4500-mgmt-ip-addrs]" show any traffic?

Since you're referring to dmgtd.log, I assume your syslog server is actually the CiscoWorks LMS server. In that case, are the 4500s still managed as "Normal Devices" in RME? Do they have the new/correct IP addrs in DCR? IME, RME doesn't report syslogs for devices it doesn't manage.

A relevant log to look at is SyslogCollector.log, particularly after enabling debug in /opt/CSCOpx/MDC/tomcat/webapps/rme/WEB-INF/classes/com/cisco/nm/rmeng/csc/data/ (and then restaring SyslogCollector).

BTW, I don't think LMS 2.6 is supported on Sol 10. Only LMS 3.0 is.
