Server A ABOX loghost BBOX

Server B BBOX ABOX loghost

Server A check your /etc/hosts to see if you host ip address has a loghost next to it.

Server B check the /etc/hosts to see if there is an entry that pointing to Server A as the loghost

check your /etc/syslog.conf

/var/adm/messages vs /var/log/messages

The /var/adm/messages in Solaris seem to log more system messages/errors compared to /var/log/messages in Linux. I checked the log level in Linux and they seem OK. Is there any other log file that contains the messages or is it just that Linux doesn't log great many things? (2 Replies)
