    Default Syslog Remote logging under Ubuntu [Documentation update]

    Chapter 12, Monitoring Zimbra Servers in the Zimbra Administrators Guide [Zimbra NE Admin Guide.pdf] could use an additional note about how to enable remote collection using syslog under Ubuntu/Debian.

    Instead of editing /etc/sysconfig/syslog, you need to edit /etc/default/syslogd
    There's only one line which has SYSLOGD_options="".

    Changing that to:
    SYSLOGD_options=”-r -m 0”

    Then running
    /etc/init.d/syslogd stop
    /etc/init.d/syslogd start

    and you'll be all set. I didn't know who to direct this to, so I just posted it here hoping someone else might get some use out of it.

    Default

    Correction, use:
    sudo /etc/init.d/sysklogd reload

    My earlier post had start/stop and was missing a 'k' from the command.

    Default

    Update for Ubuntu 8.04:

    sudo vi /etc/default/syslogd

    Code:
    #
    # Top configuration file for syslogd
    #
    
    #
    # Full documentation of possible arguments are found in the manpage
    # syslogd(8).
    #
    
    #
    # For remote UDP logging use SYSLOGD="-r"
    #
    SYSLOGD="-r -m 0"
    /etc/init.d/sysklogd restart

    Nearly nothing has changed
