To collect syslog data from all components of vRealize Automation, you connect vRealize Automation to vRealize Log Insight. You perform this procedure on one of the vRealize Automation nodes, the configuration is then automatically disseminated to the remaining cluster nodes.


  1. Log in to the vRealize Automation appliance by using a Secure Shell (SSH) client.
    Setting Value
    FQDN vra01svr01a.rainpole.local
    User name root
    Password vra_appA_root_password
  2. To send logs to vRealize Log Insight, run the command.
    vracli vrli set -k -e cross-region http://sfo01vrli01.sfo01.rainpole.local:9000
  3. Validate the configuration change by running the command.
    vracli vrli

    The command outputs the following.

    root@xreg-vra01a [ ~ ]# vracli vrli { "agentId": "0", "environment": "cross-region-production", "host": "sfo01vrli01.sfo01.rainpole.local", "port": 9000, "scheme": "http", "sslVerify": false
