Configuration

Logging allows you to add syslog servers where the event log messages related to the AOS-CX switches are saved. For each of the syslog server added, you can configure the severity of the event logs to be saved on these servers. Configuration of the severity level for the debug logs can be done by configuring the severity at the global level. However, a minimum of one syslog server must be added to configure the global severity level.

Configuration via CLI

To configure syslog for an ArubaOS-CX switch, run the following CLI command.

logging <destIP or FQDN of FortiSIEM collector>

Example: logging 192.0.2.0

Configuration via GUI 

To configure syslog for an ArubaOS-CX switch, take the following steps.

Note: For the latest configuration instructions, see Configuring Logging Servers for AOX-CX at https://help.central.arubanetworks.com/latest/documentation/online_help/content/aos-cx/cfg/conf-cx-logging.htm
