|Applies To||Authentication Manager 7.1|
|Cause||A default RSA Authentication Manager 7.1 (AM71) will only log data to its internal logging system. It is possible to have an AM71 system send data via the syslog mechanism to any selected Syslog server (such as RSA enVision)|
Authentication Manager 7.1 needs to be patched with Service Pack 2 or later; this adds the configuration values to <RSA_AM_HOME>/utils/resources/ims.properties with the patch installer:
After applying the patch, a customer who wishes to send log messages to syslog can manually change the value of use_os_logger parameter to true. For example, if the system log messages need to be sent to syslog, just set the value of ims.logging.system.use_os_logger to true. Make a backup of ims.properties before editing.
|Notes||Log Data Destination Use OS System Log Send system messages to OS system log|
On a Windows server, all RSA services must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
