|As i am in the process to setup a new VMware ESX 3.0 at my work and playing with a lot of thing, so i will try share info about how to config some parts...|
To setup the ESX server to log events on a remote syslog server:
1. In the /etc/syslog.conf file add this line "*.* @172.16.0.202” without the " and change the ip number to your syslog servers ip
2. Restart the syslog service with the command "service syslog restart"
3. Open the ESX server firewall with this command "esxcfg-firewall -o 514,udp,out,syslog" to allow syslog outgoing trafic
4. Tell the ESX firewall to reload the config with this command "esxcfg-firewall -l"
