Failed to start syslog-ng


#1

Hello everyone,
For some time I have a problem of log recovery via rsyslog / syslog-ng.
Indeed my service syslog-ng does not launch correctly.
My goal is to recover the logs of a fortigate.
Do you have a solution to my problem?

Thank you very much.

# See syslog-ng(8) and syslog-ng.conf(5) for more information.

# Note: it also sources additional configuration files (*.conf)

Which one, rsyslog or syslog-ng?

What’s the complete error message when you try starting syslog-ng with the configuration you’ve posted?

What’s in that configuration file?

What’s in the configuration files in /etc/syslog-ng/conf.d/?

And last but not least the hint, that you might want to ask syslog-ng related questions on the syslog-ng mailing list:
https://lists.balabit.hu/mailman/listinfo/syslog-ng
