I have to run syslog and syslog-ng because syslog-ng have not been probated in my compagny yet.
I want to log the same message in syslog and in syslog-ng but i conclude that's not possible for the two daemons to read the same pipe. 
Syslog-ng extract only messages that syslogd don-t want to.
Thanks for your help and if you have an idea for a solution contact me.

I'n not familiar with HP-UX, but my first guess is that you are using
the same source for both daemons. Remove the standard HP-UX log source
from syslog-ng.conf and reload syslog-ng.

What is the purpose to use two syslog daemons on the same machine? Do
you want to log the same messages with syslog and syslog-ng, or do you
want to separate them?
