  1. Click Configure, expand System, and click Syslog.

    The Syslog pane appears.

  2. From the Create new list, select Host.

  3. Type a name for the file in the dialog box, and click OK.

    The Host pane appears.

  4. To configure a message group, select the message group that you want to configure from the Create new list.

    You can configure multiple message groups in the log file.

  5. To configure a severity level:

    1. In the side pane, click the log file.

    2. From the Severity box, select the severity level that you want to track with the log file, and click Apply.
