Configure 3Com 5500G Switch to log to syslog server

Posted on 2011-03-14

Good Day,

One of our buildings has a 3Com 5500G Switch installed and I am wanting to have it log to our syslog server like we have our Cisco equipment doing. However, I know squat about 3Com. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Brock,

For this product (now named HP E5500G if you are looking for more info) you have to use Info Center commands to send syslogs.

  <Sysname> system-view
[Sysname] info-center enable
[Sysname] ¿¿  info-center x.x.x.x channel loghost (where x.x.x.x is your log server)
[Sysname]  info-center source default channel loghost log state on trap state on

Please note that you can change log and trap levels. Check the manual info-center part if you need more details!

good luck

The guide on this site is pretty good too. It has the Cisco / H3C(3com) / ProCurve command comparisons...

(you have to register but I'm pretty sure it's all cost free...)
