Hewlett Packard UNIX (HP-UX)

 

You can integrate an HP-UX device with JSA. An HP-UX DSM accepts events by using syslog.

You can configure syslog on your HP-UX device to forward events to JSA.

  1. Log in to the HP-UX device command-line interface.
  2. Open the following file:

    /etc/syslog.conf

  3. Add the following line:

    <facility>.<level><destination>

    Where:

    • <facility> is auth.

    • <level> is info.

    • <destination> is the IP address of the JSA.

  4. Save and exit the file.
  5. Type the following command to ensure that syslogd enforces the changes to the syslog.conf file.

    kill -HUP `cat /var/run/syslog.pid`

    Note

    Back quotation marks are used in the command line.

    You are now ready to configure the log source in JSA.
