Any attempts / ideas / thoughts from your side?

Yes I tried, but below is the result, which is not exact result.


1. $ActionExecOnlyWhenPreviousIsSuspended on
command-
Code:
sed     's/^$ActionExecOnlyWhenPreviousIsSuspended/#$ActionExecOnlyWhenPreviousIsSuspended/' /etc/rsyslog.conf

Result- #$ActionExecOnlyWhenPreviousIsSuspended on - its done, and fine

2. &@@10.10.10.10
Command
Code:
sed 's/^&@@10.10.10.10/#&@@10.10.10.10/' /etc/rsyslog.conf

Result- #&@@10.10.10.10@@10.10.10.10 - its replacing "#", but its replacing wrong

3. & /var/log/localbuffer
Command- sed 's/^& /var/log/localbuffer/#& /var/log/localbuffer/' /etc/rsyslog.conf
Result- sed: -e expression #1, char 11: unknown option to `s'

4. $ActionExecOnlyWhenPreviousIsSuspended off
Command- sed 's/^$ActionExecOnlyWhenPreviousIsSuspended/#$ActionExecOnlyWhenPreviousIsSuspended/' /etc/rsyslog.conf
Result- #$ActionExecOnlyWhenPreviousIsSuspended off - fine its good

Only problem in 2 & 3 .
so, looking help on this only.

That is not what I proposed. Please specify EXACTLY what you need.
# 7  
Actually the actual sentence is ..
Code:
&@@10.10.10.10

I am looking to change -
Code:
#&@@10.10.10.10

just add # before the line.

Please wrap all code, files, input & output/errors in CODE tags.
It makes it easier to read and preserves spaces for indenting or fixed-width data.
