ProcedureHow to Enable and Disable DHCP Transaction Logging (DHCP Manager)

This procedure enables and disables transaction logging for all subsequent DHCP server sessions.

  1. In DHCP Manager, choose Modify from the Service menu.

    See How to Start and Stop DHCP Manager for information about DHCP Manager.

  2. Select Log Transactions to Syslog Facility.

    To disable transaction logging, deselect this option.

  3. (Optional) Select a local facility from 0 to 7 to use for logging DHCP transactions.

    By default, DHCP transactions are logged to the location where system notices are logged, which depends on how syslogd is configured. If you want the DHCP transactions to be logged to a file separate from other system notices, see How to Log DHCP Transactions to a Separate syslog File.

    Message files can quickly become very large when transaction logging is enabled.

  4. Select Restart Server.

  5. Click OK.

    The daemon logs transactions to the selected syslog facility for this session and each subsequent session until you disable logging.
