  2. Edit the following file:


  3. Add the following information to the syslog configuration file:

    <facility>@<IP address>


    <facility> is the syslog facility, for example local4.

    <IP address> is the IP address of your JSA console or Event Collector.

    For example,


    If your Open LDAP server stores event messages in a directory other than/var/log/messages, you must edit the directory path.

  4. Save the syslog configuration file.
  5. Type the following command to restart the syslog service:

    The configuration for Open LDAP is complete. UDP multiline events that are forwarded to JSA are displayed on the Log Activity tab.
