i configured a 3750 switch to send the logs to a syslog server and enable to send any command entered on config mode with the following configuration:

switch#conf t
switch(config-archive)#log config
switch(config-archive-log-cfg)#logging enable    
switch(config-archive-log-cfg)#notify syslog

With this configuration when i any command it appears on his log as the following message:
witch(config)#int vlan 10
4d08h: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:console  logged command:interface vlan 10
4d08h: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Vlan10, changed state to down
4d08h: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:console  logged command:exit
switch(config)#no vlan 10
4d08h: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:console  logged command:no  vlan 10

i need to configure the same on a Cat6500 and this does not have ARCHIVE command.

What is the configuration needed for a Cat6500 to enable this feature.

    What version IOS are you running on the 6500? The archive command didn't come out until late 12.2 code.

    The following is the IOS image the customer is running on his switch in the 6500.

    any other thoughts?

    Accepted Solution

    Upgrade the IOS.

    The earliest release appears to be 12.2(25). The command lookup says the command was "integrated" into the IOS.  However 12.3(4) is when Cisco states that it was "introduced".

    It's also platform "dependent", so it might not even be available on the 6500.
