Turn WLC Debug on Permanently

Hi, I currently have my WLC syslogging debug messages to a Syslog Server.  It works fine except the messages I'm getting are rather mundane.  In order to get what I really want to log I have to turn on a particular debug through the terminal.  Like:

debug capwap events enable

For example. 

When I do this all the information you would see on the terminal is sent to the syslog server and all is good.  However, as soon as I disconnect the terminal (console or VTY) the debug command is removed and the level of logging falls back.

Does anyone know how I might turn on the above command permanently so that even if there's not a session on the device it's still sending back the relevant log information to the syslog server?

Re: Turn WLC Debug on Permanently

debug will be turned ON until and unless it is disabled by no debug command.

Also once the session is closed the debug will be gone and again you will have to turn on the debug
