Syslog Servers In Use for Cisco Nexus

Vendor

Cisco

Description

Indeni will verify that certain syslog servers are configured on a monitored device.

Remediation Steps

Modify the device's configuration as required.

1. Check if the IP address of the syslog server is accessible. Use theVRF management option if the Mangement VRF is configured to access the syslog servers. In this case use the "ping vrf management" command to ping the server otherwise ping the server without the vrf option.

2. Check that the appropriate logging level is enabled to send logging messages. Use the "show logging info" NX-OS command. If the logging level is not appropriate, then set the appropriate level by using the "logging level " NX-OS command.

3. It is a best practice to have at least one and no more than three, syslog servers configured.

4. For more information please review: Cisco NX-OS configuration guide.
