Below are the steps to configure logger monitor host in ZCS multi-server setup

Note: run below steps in non-peak hours during scheduled downtime.

Run on logger monitor Host:

su - zimbra
zmcontrol stop ; exit

Run as root user

/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms -e -v

On the logger monitor host, you must enable syslog to log statistics from remote machines

 a. Edit the /etc/sysconfig/syslog file, add -r to the SYSLOGD_OPTIONS setting,  SYSLOGD_options=”-r -m 0”
 b. /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsyslogsetup 
 b. Stop the syslog daemon. Type /etc/init.d/syslogd stop.
 c. Start the syslog daemon. Type /etc/init.d/syslogd start.


If You are using rsyslog instead of syslog, then you will need below change in rsyslog config.

we need to enable a module for remote logging in logger host, below changes fixes this issue.

We need to edit the rsyslog config file "/etc/rsyslog.conf" and enable "imudp" module by uncommenting the same.

$ModLoad imudp
$UDPServerRun 514

After the above change restart rsyslog service.

su - zimbra 
zmcontrol start 
/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmloggerinit 
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmsshkeygen
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmupdateauthkeys 

Verify the LogHostname using below commands. (it should be set to name of logger monitor host on all servers)

zmprov gacf |grep zimbraLogHostname

If its different, change the same to logger monitor hostname using below command.

zmprov mcf zimbraLogHostname <Logger monitor Hostname>

On all other servers: (if you have multiple zimbra servers in your setup)

Verify the LogHostname using below commands. (it should be set to name of logger monitor host on all servers)

su - zimbra
zmprov gacf |grep zimbraLogHostname  

If its different, change the same to Logger monitor Host using below command.

zmprov mcf zimbraLogHostname <Logger monitor Hostname>
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmsshkeygen
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmupdateauthkeys ; exit
/opt/zimbra/libexec/zmsyslogsetup (run as root user)
service syslog restart
service rsyslog restart
su - zimbra
zmcontrol restart
