    How to send the whole log file from ESXi server to a RHEL Logging Server?

    71rellimcm39 Novice

      Trying to store the whole log files from ESXi servers to say a RHEL logging server.

       

      I'm aware of the settings under Configuration Tab > Advanced Settings > Syslog in vCenter.  Here there are two options:  Syslog.global.logDir and Syslog.global.logHost.  The first one just places logs on another ESXi server and the last option can send the logs either via UDP or TCP to say /var/log/messages.

       

      However we want to move the logs themselves from the ESXi host to the RHEL logging server.

       

      This is vCenter 5.5 that we are working with.

       

      thanks
