ForwardSyslog to one of two sites?

Postby RichardS1 » Thu Nov 27, 2008 4:14 pm

We have two different sites (SyslogServers) that receive Syslog traffic. Is it possible to configure ForwardSyslog to one of these sites, but then be able to easily switch to the other one and back again? A bespoke applications controls which site to send traffic to, so maybe some sort of script could be called?

Many thanks for any help.

Out of my head, this could be done by a batch script which stops the service, runs a reconfig tool (basically a registry file with regedit) and then restarts the service again. Would that be a solution?
