I am running the standard syslog facility for Solaris, collecting syslog info from Cisco routers.
Recently, we started seeing a bracketed, 6 octet string in place of some of some of the host names. The first 4 octets are an IP address from the router and the last 2 octets are consistent for each IP address, but I have no clue what they represent.
May 21 20:23:47 [22.214.171.124.224.33] 51: May 21 20:26:52: %DUAL-5-NBRCHANGE: IP-EIGRP 10: Neighbor 126.96.36.199 (Vlan60) is up: new adjacency
Any ideas on why am I getting bracketed IP's, what are the final 2 octets?
Syslogd logging 6 octets = 4 IP octets + 2 random octets is seen only on Solaris. In fact, it is a bug in solaris Bug ID: 4008705. This bug is closed with no status update from Sun. Here is the partial text of the bug:
The previous problem of syslog logging three question marks (???) instead of an IP address has been resolved (103291 fixed this) - but now syslog logs the IP address with two extra fields (at the end of address). Also shows the full hostname if using DNS - not the nickname. Here is the Solaris (patched with 103291-02) syslogd log file output:

This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
