Firewall logging not working
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


On a recent rolling (12/30), it appears firewall rules aren't being logged despite having log enable on them.

The fix was simply:

sudo systemctl restart rsyslog

and firewall rules immediately started being logged.

Not sure if this is an ordering problem or what.

looks like service syslog did disappear from the default config.

It definitely remains in my config:

# show system syslog
 global {
     facility all {
         level info
     facility protocols {
         level debug
 host {
     facility all {
         level all
         protocol udp
     port 1514

systemctl renamed it to syslog, so it won't be restarted correctly and the conf script won't generate the files correctly. It is correctly named within init.d.
