No syslog servers are configured for Cisco

Vendor

Cisco

Description

Ιndeni will alert if no syslog servers are configured for a specific device.

Remediation Steps

Add syslog servers.

1. Configure at least one syslog server using the "logging server [facility ] [use-vrf ]" NX-OS command

2. It is recommended to set the severity value to 6 (informational).

NOTE: The default syslog facility used by Nexus switches is "local7" . The default VRF is "management". If you want syslog messages to be sent over the in-band global routing, use "default".

3. For more information please review the next configuration guide:

How does this work?

This script logs in to the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and retrieves the syslog servers list using the "show logging server" command.

Why is this important?

This script logs in to the Cisco Nexus switch using SSH and retrieves the syslog servers list using the "show logging server" command.

Without Indeni how would you find this?

An administrator would have to login to the device to validate the configured syslog servers.
