Issue/Introduction

Symptoms:
When the name of the Syslog Server configured on the NSX Edge is only one word without any dot separation in the name (For example: gcp-atx-syslog), ESG created in prior NSX releases to NSX 6.3.3 will fail to upgrade.

Note: This article applies to the NSX Edge syslog server only, which is different from NSX Manager syslog.


Environment

VMware NSX for vSphere 6.3.x

Cause

Configuration allows one word FQDN or dot separated FQDN. When user configure Syslog Server with FQDN in one word, validation of configuration fails while upgrading ESG to NSX release 6.3.3 from prior releases.

Note: FQDN allows 'a-zA-Z0-9_-' and at least 1 dot as Syslog Server.

Resolution

This issue is resolved in VMware NSX for vSphere 6.3.5, available at VMware Downloads.

To work around this issue if you do not want to upgrade, configure the FQDN Syslog Server name in the NSX Manager to either FQDN with dots or IPv4/IPv6 address.
