    Default Export logs due to failure

    Hi

    A firewall has started to log locally giving the error:
    sys_mesage 41 log entries were not sent to log server because of high load

    Restarting the FWD fixes this, but in the mean time, a few days works of logs are now on the firewall.

    What is the best one-off way to get the local logs on the firewall sent to the smart center server?

    Thanks

    Set-up log forwarding based on a schedule.

    Gateway Object -> Properties -> Logs & Masters -> Additional Logging. Define a time object possibly out of hours when there is no heavy traffic expected through the Firewall, and forward the logs to the log server.

    Yep, that works as well, but if you want to get around doing this manually everytime, i suggest you just set up the forwarding - so next time this occurs, it will moved to the log server without intervention.
