Description Christian Völker univentionstaff 2018-05-18 16:51:43 CEST
In the template file at /etc/univention/templates/files/etc/rsyslog.conf the variable mod is looking for syslog module files in /usr/lib/rsyslog/im%s.so

At least with UCS 4.3 the modules reside at 

So the resulting /etc/rsyslog.conf never gets remote logging enabled from template as the related entries stays commented by "#".

Also seen in my environment. There are two solutions:

1) create a link: "ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/rsyslog /usr/lib/rsyslog" or
2) apply a patch to the template file with the right directory for looking for

Comment 4 Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2018-07-18 12:32:47 CEST
OK: Fixed path check for 32 and 64bit systems
OK: Modules are activated in config when set via UCR; relp needs the additional package rsyslog-relp installed
OK: yaml
