Logs not stored locally

Postby mbester » Thu Feb 12, 2015 11:37 am

Problem is logs not being written to the expected files
Logs are confirmed as entering the server using TCPDUMP
Server is confirmed as listening on port 514

rsyslog version 5.8.10
RHEL version 6.4

I am not sure why but the server has been setup to use rsyslog.conf but also another file within the rsyslod.d directory. This set up is working on another host.

This is a live box which I am trying to replicate in the lab so that I can then verify the upgrade path to a more recent version of syslog.

I have included for reference:

Both config files

I am do not have a background in Linux so apologise if I have missed something obvious.
