How to setup SYSLOG’s in VMware EXSi

I wrote this up from the documentation, and it seems to work ok, even through I have not had a chance test it well.

Install remote CPL for vmware

CMD to C:Program FilesVMwareVMware VI Remote CLIbin>

——— Set syslog server

C:Program FilesVMwareVMware VI Remote CLIbin>vicfg-syslog.pl –url https://ipaddressofserver/sdk/webService –setserver ipaddressofcentralsyslogserver

Enter username: root

Enter password:

—————- Dispay settings

C:Program FilesVMwareVMware VI Remote CLIbin>vicfg-syslog.pl –url https://ipaddressofserver/sdk/webService –show

This should allow you to send syslog’s to somthing like Zenoss or a central syslog server.

Now, trying to get the syslog server to understand the traps, that is what I will be working to figure out….
