Hi everyone ,
I wanna change the notification mean from email to syslog, i know that i should change it in setup>email, Notification and Escalation. but is changing mai:contact1 for example to syslog is sufficient or i i have to install a syslog server by myself and configure NMIS to use it.
My best regards,
to tell NMIS that you want its escalation messages sent by syslog, you'll have to change the notification entry for a particular level to include
syslog:<ip address>, e.g. "
NMIS will then send these notifications via the syslog protocol to the given target address or hostname.
naturally this requires that the server you're sending these to has a syslog daemon installed and configured for incoming network connections. the former is normal for typical linux/unix systems, the latter is not and usually requires a bit of reconfiguration of the syslog daemon in question, and that any firewalls inbetween the sending and receiving systems allow UDP packets to port 514.
