In this post we are going to configure the Synology Syslog server so that we can get rid of the message below that occurs because my servers use the SanDisk Cruzer Fit USB drives
First of all we need to log in to our Synology NAS device, in my case this is a Synology DS1513+ running DSM 4.3.3810.
In the top corner press the menu button to bring up the above menu, click Control Panel
Click Shared Folder
Now we are going to create the folder where all the logs are going to be kept
Tick the Hide this shared folder in “My Network Places” box
Folder present, next we are going to install the Syslog server
In the top corner press the menu button to bring up the above menu, click Package Center
We can see that we currently don’t have anything installed, click in the search bar and type syslog
Click the Install button
The Syslog Server icon drops in to the quick launch menu, click on it to launch the Syslog Server
The first time you run it you will be prompted to enable the Syslog Server, click OK
Tick the Enable Syslog server and choose the location for the log files (syslog). Click Apply
Your Syslog server is now up and running, ready to receive data.
In the next post I will configure the infrastructure to point to our new Syslog Server.
