Viewing Syslog on a HP switch

Hi

I have a HP V1910 24g switch and I am suspecting few issues with it when it comes to hosts connecting to it.

I am trying to see the Syslog on the switch but

a- I am not too familiar with it
b- I have configured the loghost  to be the switch it self but nothing appears on the syslog page.

So how to view the Syslog?

I have three users who are always experiencing issues connecting I just want to know if the ports are faulty.

On the interface level nothing seems to be unusual.

Any help will be highly appreciated

Thanks

Try removing the IP address of the switch itself from the Loghost list. This was more designed for specifying other loghosts and is an optional setting.

DId you try rebooting the switch after removing the IP address of the switch from the Loghost list?

I was hoping you do not say that

No I can not reboot it I would be taken to court if I did. it is a switch in a strategic position for an investment co.

What I did was I added my workstation IP as a Log host , removed the IP of the switch itself and configured the refresh interval etc.

But nothing appears. when I click on the Syslog

Sorry, wasn't aware you couldn't reboot it. May I ask why you added your workstation IP address as the log host? Do you have syslog software installed on your machine to collect the logs?

I am not concerned aboutthat to be honest

But should I be able to view the syslog on the switch itself without further configuration or anything?

You can use the free version of Kiwi Syslog Server as it allows you to collect logs of up to 5 devices. I've used this with other HP ProCurves in the past with great success. http://www.kiwisyslog.com/free-edition.aspx

Yes, you should. I'm not sure why you can't see the logs on the web interface to be honest.
