Solaris DHCP Administration Guide

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

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

  1. Choose Modify from the Service menu.

  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 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 if it is not already selected.

  5. Click OK.

    The daemon will log transactions to the selected syslog facility for this session and each subsequent session until you disable it in this dialog box.
