System Administration Guide: IP Services

Enabling syslog Logging for IPQoS Messages

To record IPQoS boot-time messages, you need to modify the /etc/syslog.conf file as shown in the next procedure.

ProcedureHow to Enable Logging of IPQoS Messages During Booting

  1. Assume the Primary Administrator role, or become superuser, on the IPQoS-enabled system.

    The Primary Administrator role includes the Primary Administrator profile. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Chapter 2, Working With the Solaris Management Console (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Open the /etc/syslog.conf file.

  3. Add the following text as the final entry in the file.                 /var/adm/messages

    Use tabs rather than spaces between the columns.

    The entry logs all boot-time messages that are generated by IPQoS into the /var/adm/messages file.

  4. Reboot the system to apply the messages.
