Configuring remote syslog for ESXi5 hosts

less than 1 minute read

Just wanted to share this real quick for anyone who may want to setup remote syslogging on your ESXi5 hosts. I like to configure this so I can keep up with all of my servers in one location. This can be a splunk server running as a syslog collector or I like to use loganalyzer running on a ubuntu server that is also running as a cacti monitoring server. The screenshot below shows the location of where to configure remote syslogging and remember you need to do this for each one of your ESXi hosts.
