comment rsyslog adding unwanted text to outbound log data
Yeah this answer is not fully correct. I changed the log output by using $template myFormat,"%msg%\n" and local5.*;local6.* @syslog.my.organization.tld:514;myFormat. Still have a bit of tweaking to do, but the text Jun 29 11:57:58 appserver acoder: is now gone.

comment rsyslog adding unwanted text to outbound log data
I'm viewing output sent from the app server with tcpdump -vv -s 0 -A dst port 514. So you are saying that the rsyslog log format cannot be edited beyond what is done in httpd.conf's LogFormat section?

comment Adding dropbear to initramfs with dracut on Fedora
Thanks, I am trying to find an alternate as I cannot get this or similar solutions to work (under virtualbox). Plan B is to find a iDrac module for the server and use that.

comment luks volume disappears after reboot
DRAC is Dell's device to allow monitoring/interaction of systems before/during boot.

comment luks volume disappears after reboot
What do people do when encrypting volumes on a remote server without a drac? I see where to specify a cred file, but that seems foolish since anyone would be able to read it on boot.

comment luks volume disappears after reboot
I issued cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/VolGroup/db00 db_fips just now after reboot and was prompted for password, and am now able to see the volume. Will this have to be manually entered on every reboot? What if I encrypt a system volume (such as /var/log/)?

comment Creating separate volume for /var/log/ and /var/log/audit/
Ok this works nicely. I added /var/log/ and /var/log/audit/ in sequence under /var/ in fstab - no issues. Thanks for the response.

Will I need to list the new volumes in /etc/fstab in any particular order?

comment unknown facility name “local8”
man page is >822 pages long - hoped it would be an easy thing to regurgitate.

comment unknown facility name “local8”
Is it possible to further filter what is sent to the external server? Could I exclude notices from local5, for instance?

comment unknown facility name “local8”
Got it - I disabled the file streams and am just sending data via port 514 to external logger. Much better now.

comment unknown facility name “local8”
Yeah I figured out my mistake a few minutes ago. I have error and access going to separate facilities. I'm still unsure why I need to output to new files what is already being written to the existing apache logfiles (virtualhosts in play, and the apache log files are well organized).

comment What defines the type of log data that goes into local1, local2, ect?
Is it possible to split logs into severity? IE, I want to store local6 with severity 5-7 in one file, and severity 1-4 in another.

Did you mean iptables -I INPUT -j LOG and iptables -I OUTPUT -j LOG?

comment Policy in /etc/pam.d/password-auth is not being enforced
That did it - /etc/pam.d/passwd points to /etc/pam.d/system-auth. Updated my policy there and it is now being correctly implemented.

cat: /etc/pam.d/password: No such file or directory (this is centos per tags on the question, fwiw)
