I have seen this asked a few times over the past year, and I also experienced it last week working on a customer deployment. How do you get a remote Syslog configuration to work when you have already done your vCloud installation. These are the steps that I took last week to enable Remote Syslog after installation and configuration Stop the vCD Cloud cell using command service vmware-vcd stop Edit the line “audit.syslog.host” and add your remote syslog server in the response.properties (normally located at /opt/vmware/cloud-director/etc) Run the configuration script installation-file -r <path to response file> (installation file is the vCloud director installation binary) Edit the line “audit.syslog.host” and add your remote syslog server in the file global.properties (normally located at /opt/vmware/cloud-director/etc) Restart the vCD Cloud cell using command service vmware-vcd start Watch your syslog server for entries That it. Hope this helps stop people completely re-building the vCloud environment.
