Configuring Junos Scope System Log Output

The Junos Scope system log output is enabled during installation by default.

During the Junos Scope installation process, the installer is prompted for the following:

Please enter the syslog facility (local0-local7) [local2]:

The syslog facility indicates a pipe where the syslog daemon (syslogd) sends the Junos Scope software system log messages that it receives. The administrator can enter the values local0, local1, local2, local3, local4, local5, local6, or local7 that correspond to a logging facility. The default is local2, which is logging facility 2.

The Junos Scope administrator can change the syslog facility at any time by reconfiguring Junos Scope using the script.
