Hi All,


I am trying to get my syslog-ng server set up. it all seems ok, but
when i try to add my destination and filter at the end, i get an error
about syntax. can someone take a look and tell me what i am doing
wrong? thanks


#@SuSEconfig@
#@SuSEconfig@ This is a template file used by SuSEconfig
#@SuSEconfig@ to generate the final syslog-ng.conf.
#@SuSEconfig@
#@SuSEconfig@ SuSEconfig adds additional log sockets from
#@SuSEconfig@ /etc/sysconfig/syslog to the source bellow.
#@SuSEconfig@
#
# File format description can be found in syslog-ng.conf(5)
# and /usr/share/doc/packages/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.txt.

# Most warning and errors on tty10 and on the xconsole pipe:
#
destination console { file("/dev/tty10" group(tty) perm(0620)); };
log { source(src); filter(f_console); destination(console); };


destination xconsole { pipe("/dev/xconsole" group(tty) perm(0400)); };
log { source(src); filter(f_console); destination(xconsole); };


# Enable this, if you want that root is informed immediately,
# e.g. of logins:
#
#destination root { usertty("root"); };
#log { source(src); filter(f_alert); destination(root); };


#
# News-messages in separate files:
#
destination newscrit { file("/var/log/news/news.crit"); };
log { source(src); filter(f_newscrit); destination(newscrit); };


destination newserr { file("/var/log/news/news.err"); };

destination newsnotice { file("/var/log/news/news.notice"); };
log { source(src); filter(f_newsnotice); destination(newserr); };


#
# and optionally also all in one file:
#
#destination news { file("/var/log/news.all"); };
#log { source(src); filter(f_news); destination(news); };


#
# Mail-messages in separate files:
#
destination mailinfo { file("/var/log/mail.info"); };
log { source(src); filter(f_mailinfo); destination(mailinfo); };


destination mailwarn { file("/var/log/mail.warn"); };
log { source(src); filter(f_mailwarn); destination(mailwarn); };


destination mailerr { file("/var/log/mail.err" fsync(yes)); };
log { source(src); filter(f_mailerr); destination(mailerr); };


#
# and also all in one file:
#
destination mail { file("/var/log/mail"); };
log { source(src); filter(f_mail); destination(mail); };


#
# Cron-messages in one file:
#
#destination cron { file("/var/log/cron"); };
#log { source(src); filter(f_cron); destination(cron); };


#
# Some boot scripts use/require local[1-7]:
#
destination localmessages { file("/var/log/localmessages"); };
log { source(src); filter(f_local); destination(localmessages); };


#
# All messages except iptables and the facilities news and mail:
#
destination messages { file("/var/log/messages"); };
log { source(src); filter(f_messages); destination(messages); };


#
# Firewall (iptables) messages in one file:
#
destination firewall { file("/var/log/firewall"); };
log { source(src); filter(f_iptables); destination(firewall); };


#
# Warnings (except iptables) in one file:
#
destination warn { file("/var/log/warn" fsync(yes)); };
log { source(src); filter(f_warn); destination(warn); };


#
# Enable this, if you want to keep all messages in one file:
#
#destination allmessages { file("/var/log/allmessages"); };
#log { source(src); destination(allmessages); };


#Log messages from hq-it-mwilliams
destination local_network {
file
("/var/log/syslog-ng/$YEAR.$MONTH.$DAY/$HOST/$FACILITY.log");
log { source(s_tcp); filter(hq_it_name); destination(local_network); };


I get an error stating syntax error on line 240, being:


log { source(s_tcp); filter(hq_it_name); destination(local_network); };


Can someone tell me what the deal is?

TIA,
