Is it possible to configure journald not to write entries to /var/log/messages on Centos?

I tried by setting ForwardToSyslog=no in /etc/systemd/journald.conf:

  • CentOS Linux release 7.3
  • systemd 219

Usually it is rsyslogd or syslogd that write to /var/log/messages. Try stopping and / or disabling the respective service.

  • Thanks, rsyslogd reconfig solved it. – Zlemini Sep 5 '17 at 16:32
