syslog is an invalid command


#1

Hi

im trying to set up an syslog server but i cant configure the syslog settings

if i type: “show system syslog” i get “Invalid command: show system [syslog]” . i get the same result if i type “set system syslog”

root@router:~$ show system
Possible completions:
boot-messages Show most recent kernel boot messages
commit Show commit revisions log
connections Show active network connections on the system
image Show installed Vyatta images
kernel-messages
Show messages in kernel ring buffer
login Show user accounts
memory Display system memory usage
processes Show system processes
routing-daemons
Show Quagga routing daemons
storage Show filesystem usage
uptime Show how long the system has been up

root@router:~$ show system image
The system currently has the following image(s) installed:

1: VyOS-1.1.8 (default boot) (running image)
2: 1.1.1

what am im doing wrong?

regards

Hello,
you need to switch into configure mode
for details see https://wiki.vyos.net/wiki/User_Guide#Using_the_Command-Line_Interface
