Reset Syslog.Global.Loghost to blank

Posted by

This morning I worked with the customer where syslog traffic was choking an already crippled network.

Connect-VIServer -Server
#Change the $Cluster as per your enviroment
$cluster = "sgp"
#Change the $datacenter as per your enviroment
$datacenter = "nukescloud"
#Applying the setting
$hosts = Get-Datacenter $datacenter | Get-Cluster -Name $cluster | Get-VMHost
Get-AdvancedSetting -Name "Syslog.Global.Loghost" -Entity $hosts | Set-AdvancedSetting -Value ""
#Change the -Server per your enviroment
