We have a Sonicwall TZ215 running new 5.9 firmware.  We have installed that analyzer software and the analyzer sees the sonicwall.  If we open up analyzer we get the following error:  "Syslog Servers may not have been applied on the appliance"

Hi technolutions,

Make sure the Analyzer's server is using a static IP address. It is also recommended to switch off any firewall or antivirus for the installation as they may cause problem.

When you choose the IP address on which Analyzer would be listening...it has to be one of your Analyzer’s server IP address. Do not enter the IP address of your SonicWALL UTM product here.

Can you ping the syslog server from the firewall?

Did you add the SonicWALL Analyzer IP address in the SonicWALL security appliances?

SonicWALL Analyzer collects the data using the Syslog port 514,

To add SonicWALL Analyzer IP (syslog servers) to the SonicWALL security appliance, follow these steps:
Step 1: Login to the SonicWALL Management Interface
Step 2: Navigate to Log > Syslog and click Add.
The Add Syslog Server window is displayed.
Step 3: Type the Syslog server name or IP address in the Name or IP Address field. Messages from the SonicWALL security appliance are then sent to the servers.
Step 4: If your syslog is not using the default port of 514, type the port number in the Port Number field.
Step 5: Click OK.
Step 6: Click Accept to save all Syslog Server settings.

Let me know how it goes!

After opening port 21007 on the firewall the syslog issue stopped.

That's bizarre...port 21007 is completely random...it mentions nothing about it in the setup or admin guides!

Glad it works for you!
