Configuring a Cisco Catalyst switch
|Top Previous Next|
This will work on the Cisco Catalyst switches that use the 'set' command type CLI. This includes the old 2900 series or 5000 series switches.
Telnet to the switch or connect via the console and enter into enable mode.
Enter the following commands from the enable prompt on the switch.
Set logging enable
Set logging level all 7 default (this will set all facilities with a level of debug)
Set logging [IP Address or Hostname of machine running Kiwi Syslog Server]
For the new Catalyst switches that use the IOS type CLI use the following commands.
logging trap warnings (or whatever level you want)
Logging Facility Local7 (or any other facility you want to allocate for this router.)
Logging <IP Address or Hostname of machine running Kiwi Syslog Server>
