I am trying to determine if my Syslog Collector I just set up in vCenter 5 is working correctly.
Things I have checked:
- The Windows firewall on vCenter has the ports set to allow inc from the Syslog Collector.
- The service is running
- The directories are there, the install went OK, no errors.
- Viewing the Syslog collector in vCenter display setting I set during setup under Home>Administration>Network Syslog Collector> vCenter name. Appears to be listening.
So should I see data under \data right from the start or does something 'bad' have to happen before I see data populate in the folder that Syslog is pointed at? In vCenter there are columns for Host, Logging to, Size listed under Home>Administration>Network Syslog Collector> vCenter name, but I don't see any of my hosts in vCenter listed there.
