Enabling log forwarding
This procedure describes how to enable the log forwarding feature.
To enable log forwarding
- Log on to the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu and navigate to the Main > Settings > LogForwarding view.
- To enable log forwarding, enter the following command:
Specify the following:
Server name or IP address: Enter the name or the IP address of the external log management server.
Server port: Enter the port number of the external log management server.
Protocol: Select either UDP or TCP. TCP is the default.
Interval: Enter the forwarding interval in minutes. The options are 0, 15, 30, 45, or 60. The default is 15. If you set the interval to 0, appliance continuously forwards syslogs to the target server.
TLS: Select either Yes or No. Yes is the default.
Enabling TLS requires that you upload two certificates and one private key to the appliance.
- Verify the configuration summary, and type yes to complete the configuration.
