WLC logs for clients to send to a syslog server

Hello,

Are there any logs on the WLC that can capture the MAC,IP address and User Name of a client ?

We want to send this information to a syslog server

We have increased the logging level and We are looking for the information in our syslogs but it is not there

Thank you in advance

Best Regards

Re: WLC logs for clients to send to a syslog server

In controller software release 5.0.148.0, you can enable the controller to log system events to up to three remote syslog servers. The controller sends a copy of each syslog message as it is logged to each syslog server configured on the controller. Because it is able to send the syslog messages to multiple servers, it ensures that the messages are not lost due to the temporary unavailability of one syslog server.

This type of configuration helps in these situations:

-One of the configured syslog servers is not available.

-Multiple administrator groups can monitor different message types.

-Large deployments can want syslog messages sent to servers across different time-zones for extended visibility. Note: Syslog messages are sent on UDP Port 514; additional server configuration can require a relaxation of firewall rules.

With Wireless LAN Controller Release 5.0, a new CLI has been introduced to configure syslog servers with the CLI. The old command has been deprecated.
