- What is the default source IP if any?


- How to select one IP to be the source for remote logging?

  • can you try this?



    sol12080: Configuring the source IP address for the syslog daemon

  • I never have this problem. That could be because in my case, if the syslog server was on the same VLAN/subnet as of managment VLAN. So bigip used management interface to go out with management IP address.



    If you syslog server is on different subnet then managment, then I think the answer could be in defining a static route. Just a thought...hope this will help. Cheers.
  • what FizzyBoy mentioned would work as well.
