First, we are not on your "team".

And your problem can be solved with a call to Red Hat support. Since you're using RHEL, are you PAYING FOR IT?? And please, don't give the same old "it's for test/learning/cert purpose, so I don't need to" excuse. You DO need to pay for RHEL if you're going to use it. Also, RHEL 6 is old...the latest is 7, so if this is a new installation, stop there and load the latest versions of things.

If you DO NOT plan on paying for RHEL, then load CentOS instead...it's identical, but FREE. The console does this, because that's what it was originally for. See the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature. If you had tried to put "stop syslog messages on console in RHEL" into Google, you'd have found the answer...you need to do basic research first, and this is also covered on Red Hat's website/knowledgebase, if you tried to look there.

Edit /etc/sysconfig/syslog, and insert/modify the line:
Code:
KLOGD_OPTIONS="-2 -c 1"
Then restart the syslog process. Modify the system logger's configuration not to send messages to the console...you don't say whether you're using the stock syslog, or syslog-ng, but alter the lines sending output to /dev/console. Send this output to a file instead, or just comment them out if you don't want output at all.
