    syslogd -r (Fedora Core 1)

    Hi all,

    Have a (probably simple) question here.

    I have a Netscreen 100 in HA that I'm logging to a syslog server. My /etc/syslog.conf is the default, save for an entry called

    local3.* /var/log/netscreen/netscreen-log

    My NS100 is configured for LOCAL3/LOCAL3, however I notice it is writing to both the /var/log/netscreen directory, as well as /var/log/messages. Only reference I see to the messages file in syslog.conf is the following:

    # Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
    # Don't log private authentication messages!
    *.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none /var/log/messages

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    If I remeber correctly you may exclude certain facilities and levels from some log locations as follows:

    *.debug /var/log/messages

    to excluded local3.*

    *.debug;local3.debug /var/log/messages
    local3.debug /var/log/mylog

    I believe you should be able to replace debug with *.
