To specify the router that is reported in system log messages as their source when they are directed to a remote machine, include the source-address statement at the [edit system syslog] hierarchy level:
- [edit system syslog]
- source-address source-address;
source-address is a valid IPv4 or IPv6 address configured on one of the router interfaces. The address is reported in the messages directed to all remote machines specified in host hostname statements at the [edit system syslog] hierarchy level, but not in messages directed to the other Routing Engine.
