    vROPS 6.6.1 - Anyway of changing syslog to UDP?

    sandsfootgroup Novice

      Hello

       

      We have recently upgraded to vROPS 6.6.1.  We have an external syslog system across our entire estate that is configured to use port 514 UDP.

       

      When configuring vROPS to forward syslog, we reference this article Configuring the external syslog server in vRealize Operations Manager 6.x (2144033) VMware Knowledge Base

       

      However, at the bottom of the article it states:

      • For vRealize Operations Manager 6.0, Analytics, Collector, Web, SuiteAPI and Audit logs use UDP connection for log configuration.
      • For vRealize Operation Manager 6.0.1 or later versions, Analytics, Collector, Web, SuiteAPI use TCP connection and Audit logs use UDP connection for log configuration.

       

      Questions:

      1. Why did this change?
      2. Can you change 6.6.1 to use UDP?

       

      Thanks
