Operating Systems Solaris Cannot start system-log on Solaris 10 Post 303018934 by Peasant on Tuesday 19th of June 2018 11:09:19 AM

I would say the issue is in space char.
syslog uses tabs as separators, be sure to check for those.
Code:
*.err;kern.debug;daemon.notice;mail.crit;auth.debug;user.debug;local6.info<tab>@<IP Address of Syslog server>

Personaly, i use disable/enable with svcadm, when restarting stuff.

During startup, also syslog should log a line or two why it failed in /var/log/ suggesting some course of action.

Hope that helps
Regards
Peasant.

LOGGER(1)						    BSD General Commands Manual 						 LOGGER(1)

NAME
logger -- a shell command interface to the syslog(3) system log module SYNOPSIS
logger [-isd] [-f file] [-p pri] [-t tag] [-u socket] [message ...] DESCRIPTION
Logger makes entries in the system log. It provides a shell command interface to the syslog(3) system log module. Options: -i Log the process id of the logger process with each line. -s Log the message to standard error, as well as the system log. -f file Log the specified file. -p pri Enter the message with the specified priority. The priority may be specified numerically or as a ``facility.level'' pair. For example, ``-p local3.info'' logs the message(s) as informational level in the local3 facility. The default is ``user.notice.'' -t tag Mark every line in the log with the specified tag. -u sock Write to socket as specified with socket instead of builtin syslog routines. -d Use a datagram instead of a stream connection to this socket. -- End the argument list. This is to allow the message to start with a hyphen (-). message Write the message to log; if not specified, and the -f flag is not provided, standard input is logged. The logger utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs. Valid facility names are: auth, authpriv (for security information of a sensitive nature), cron, daemon, ftp, kern, lpr, mail, news, security (deprecated synonym for auth), syslog, user, uucp, and local0 to local7, inclusive. Valid level names are): alert, crit, debug, emerg, err, error (deprecated synonym for err), info, notice, panic (deprecated synonym for emerg), warning, warn (deprecated synonym for warning). For the priority order and intended purposes of these levels, see syslog(3). EXAMPLES
logger System rebooted logger -p local0.notice -t HOSTIDM -f /dev/idmc SEE ALSO
syslog(3), syslogd(8) STANDARDS
The logger command is expected to be IEEE Std 1003.2 (``POSIX.2'') compatible. 4.3 Berkeley Distribution June 6, 1993 4.3 Berkeley Distribution
