Severity: 4-Minor


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


Cannot see as much verbose debug logging as expected.


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


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
