Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 836999
rsyslog raises errors because of missing /var/spool/rsyslog
Last modified: 2016-04-26 11:45:02 EDT
Description of problem:
rsyslog fails to start because /var/spool/rsyslog does not exist
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
At a second look syslog does start but still raises the error. An in-memory fallback for message storage is used.
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development. This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
I could not reproduce this problem on rhevh-6.3-20120710 anymore and also couldn't find it  in upstream builds.
dmesg | grep -i syslog
