Duplication of host names in syslog server logs
A sysklogd log server accepts remote logs from RHEL4 and RHEL5 machines without issue; however, on the syslog server all log entries from RHEL6 machines have the hostname duplicated in them, e.g.:
Mar 8 09:25:24 example.com example.com kernel: Zone PFN ranges: Mar 8 09:25:24 example.com example.com Using APIC driver default
Why is this happening and how can it be fixed?
- log server running standard syslog
- clients running rsyslog
