How to set selective syslog server?

L0 Member

Can I set palo alto to check if syslog server is up before forwarding the log, and if the main syslog server is down then forward log to another server?

 

I have issues that I need palo alto to not forwarding logs to both servers at the same time.

Thank you for posting question @Theerdam

 

I was researching this topic and doing some verification. Regardless of PAN-OS version there can be up to 4 syslog servers configured in one syslog server profile, however there is no logic / connection check. Syslog server profile is sending logs to all targets simultaneously. One way to go around it would be to send all the logs to Virtual IP address of Load Balancer, then based on health check send logs to either of the real syslog server.

 

Kind Regards
