Known Affected Versions:
14.1.0, 14.1.0.1, 14.1.0.2, 14.1.0.3, 14.1.0.4, 14.1.0.5, 14.1.0.6, 14.1.2, 14.1.2.1, 15.0.0, 15.0.1

Opened: Jun 28, 2019
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

If you change only the log level in ipsec ike-daemon ikedaemon, for example to debug2, this may not increase the actual logging verbosity.

Impact

Cannot see as much verbose debug logging as expected.

Conditions

Changing log-level to control the amount of debug logging.

Workaround

In addition to log level, you must also specify a publisher. This is as-designed operation for logging, for example: tmsh create sys log-config publisher my_publisher { destinations add { local-syslog }} tmsh modify net ipsec ike-daemon ikedaemon log-publisher my_publisher tmsh modify net ipsec ike-daemon ikedaemon log-level debug2

Fix Information
