Vcenter 5 & 5.5 syslog server is separate component and we have to installed it separately but with vcenter 6. 0 syslogcollector service already installed and we can only customized.
How to costomize syslog server configuration.
- Opena syslog collector config file from notepad. This file is locate under “c:\programdata\vmware\vcenterserver\cfg\vmsyslogcollector”
Bydefault all the syslog will be installed under c:\programdata.
But as a best practice we can change this location to different drive or folder.
- In this exam I have changed it it c:\syslog folder.Also if we required we can change the ports and some other settings.
