UCS Nagios Server as Cental Syslog Server too

I have configured our Nagios UCS Member Server to be our central monitoring server, now I would like to also configure it as our central location for log files.
I have already setup the rsyslog.conf files and those appear to be working correctly locally. I have enabled syslog reception via 514 on UDP and TCP. However we are not seeing any remote servers flowing, even though the remote servers are configured to send to the Nagios server.

I am thinking inbound firewall ports on the UCS need to be opened up to allow the syslog traffic in.

How do I via the command line open UCS Firewall ports for TCP and UDP port 514?


Hy Brian,

I don’t really know for sure, but to hp sim i must do this

ucr set security/packetfilter/hpsmh/tcp/2381/all=ACCEPT

That open port 2381 tcp type so i think i can do something like that for 514 tcp and then 514 udp i think this should do the trick

ucr set security/packetfilter/rsyslog/udp/514/all=ACCEPT
ucr set security/packetfilter/rsyslog/tcp/514/all=ACCEPT

Then restart firewall

Thanks, I’ll try these on my dev system first to see if it works/breaks anything.

That worked!!! GREAT…thanks so much!
