Extreme 800-Series Switch


The Extreme 800-Series Switch DSM for JSA accepts events by using syslog.

JSA records all relevant audit, authentication, system, and switch events. Before you configure your Extreme 800-Series Switch in JSA, you must configure your switch to forward syslog events.

Configuring Your Extreme 800-Series Switch

Configuring the Extreme 800-Series Switch to forward syslog events.

To manually configure the Extreme 800-Series Switch:

    You must be a system administrator or operator-level user to complete these configuration steps.

  2. Type the following command to enable syslog:

    enable syslog

  3. Type the following command to create a syslog address for forwarding events to JSA:

    create syslog host 1 <IP address> severity informational facility local7 udp_port 514 state enable

    Where: <IP address> is the IP address of your JSA Console or Event Collector.

  4. Type the following command to forward syslog events by using an IP interface address:
