If you look at the iLO4 user guide under "iLO 4 license options" you'll see it is available, If you look at the iLO3 user guide under "iLO 3 license options" you will not see remote syslog mentioned.

If you look in the iLO4 scripting and command line guide you will find the following lines...

<REMOTE_SYSLOG_ENABLE VALUE="N"/>
<REMOTE_SYSLOG_PORT VALUE="514"/>
<REMOTE_SYSLOG_SERVER_ADDRESS VALUE=""/>

If you look in the iLO3 version you will not find those lines.

Therefore the answer to "anyone setup an ilo 3 with syslog?" is "no" although someone from HP may have done it with experimental firmware but even if so they wouldn't release that firmware as they couldn't sell you a new server that way.
