configuring Syslog-ng on RHEL 5
I have installed syslog-ng on RHEL 5 to forward the syslog messages to the centralized server. I have done required configuration on syslog-ng.conf file to point to the centralized server.
But when I am starting the syslog-ng service, it gives following error
[root@vd12sta sysconfig]# service syslog-ng start
Starting system logger: Error opening file for reading; filename='/proc/kmsg', e rror='Permission denied (13)'
Error initializing source driver; source='s_sys'
I am trying to start this service by using root login
Permission for the /proc/kmsg are as following
-rwx------ 1 root root 0 Mar 13 01:30 kmsg
Please let me know the issue? Also please let me if any work around to start this service?
