ProcedureHow to Check syslogd for FTP Server Messages

The FTP server writes messages that are useful for debugging to the location that is specified for daemon messages in the /etc/syslog.conf file. If a problem occurs with the FTP server, check this file first for such messages.

The FTP server messages are controlled by facility daemon and level information. To send messages from the FTP server to /var/adm/message and have syslogd reread its configuration file, follow these instructions:

  1. Add an entry such as the following to the /etc/syslog.conf file. /var/adm/message
  2. Signal syslogd to reread its configuration.

    # svcadm refresh system/system-log

    This action causes informational messages from the FTP Sever to be written to /var/adm/messages.
