Scripting and automation are ashamedly new territories for me. I’ve heard enough clarion calls to grow and develop personally and professionally, though, that I know I have to gain ground here. Hopefully this is the first step in building my knowledge base of such tools.
In this entry, I need to solve for two configuration tasks.
First, I am concluding an evaluation of Splunk and need to reset my vSphere ESXi 5.5 hosts’ syslog global log hosts to only our existing syslog server. My inclination was to click through the vSphere Client and change it host by host, as it would have taken less time than it has to write the words in the post so far. However, as I am in search of a new syslog solution, possibly VMware LogInsight, I know I will need to do this again.
