XenServer log files.



  • I've been setting up a central logging server for this weeks project. It's a week long project I just completed, yay for things not breaking this week.

    Anyway, I was looking at an ssh session to the one XenServer host we have, going, "Where'd rsyslog go?" Turns out I was making life harder than it needed to be. Just use the GUI. Much as I dislike relying on a GUI, it's just easy.

    What are you trying to do?

    Some of that stuff doesn't work, and it's all been changed in XS7 anyway.

    Just forward the logging messages to a single place. When something stops working I have one spot to go looking for the problems, and can easily find it by searching for a hostname from the /var/log/messages file on my rsyslog host server.

    Oh, that will definitely work, then. 🙂



  • Good information for me as I'm in the process of learning XenServer (although its 7)
