  • Syslog information:
    • Information used to identify the source host, for example, the board serial number, product asset tag, or host name
    • Transmission protocol to be used, for example, TLS, TCP, or UDP
    • Syslog authentication method, for example, one-way or two-way authentication

A free certificate generation tool, such as OpenSSL, downloaded from the Internet.


  1. Generate certificates.

    The certificates required vary depending on the authentication mode:

    • One-way authentication: requires a syslog server certificate and a server root certificate.
    • Two-way authentication: requires a syslog server certificate, a server root certificate, a syslog client certificate, and a client root certificate.

    For details about how to generate certificates, see the user guide of OpenSSL.

  2. Upload certificates to the syslog server.

    Use a file transfer tool that supports SFTP, for example WinSCP, to transfer the certificates to the specified directory (for example /tmp) of the iBMC file system.

    • One-way authentication: Upload the server certificate to the syslog server.
    • Two-way authentication: Upload the server certificate and client root certificate to the syslog server.

      • If Authentication Mode is Two-way, upload the server root certificate and client certificate (generated in Generate certificates) to the iBMC.

  5. Configure the syslog server and message format.
    1. Locate the channel for sending syslog messages, and click in the Operation column.
