Hello,

Doing the following, it works for me on my machine:
Code:
grep "*.info;mail.none;news.none;authpriv.none;cron.none" /etc/rsyslog.conf
You will just need to grep your syslog.cong file, as on my system, it is rsyslog.conf for me.

Cheers,

Josh

Enclosing it in quotes works for me. Perhaps that EXACT string is not in the file?

Code:
u@h:~$ grep "*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none" /etc/rsyslog.conf 
*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none                /var/log/messages

I would cat both files and even see if that string exists within those files.

[root@ip-118-139-160-169 ~]# echo $?
1
[root@ip-118-139-160-169 ~]#

Now it looks my question ,I copied ur content.

Honestly, I use zsh. I did however try in bash, and it worked for me.
Code:
[root@ltp01 ~]# bash --version
