Integrating Brocade Router/Switch

Before you configure the Brocade Router/Switch integration, you must have the IP Address of the USM Appliance Sensor.

To configure Brocade Router/Switch to send Syslog messages to USM Appliance

In global configuration mode, configure a router/switch to forward system messages to the USM Appliance Sensor:

logging syslog-server <USM Appliance IP address> [ use-vrf <vrf-name> [ secure ] [ port port-num ]

no logging syslog-server <USM Appliance IP address> [ use-vrf <vrf-name> [ secure ] [ port port-num ]

where parameters specified in commands are the following:

  • use-vrf: Specifies a VRF instance.
  • secure: Configures a secure default port (514) or specified non-default syslog server port.

    Note: A secure port number with default values is not shown in the Brocade Network OS database.
