    That did the trick. I can't thank you enough.

Using the system() source instead of using unix-dgram() directly should solve this issue.

The problem is that under systemd /dev/log is taken over by systemd, and it forwards messages to a different socket. The error is about this conflict as you use low-level primitives instead of the higher level system() source. I know that wasn't available in old times, but its preferred now.

    I am currently migrating a CentOS 6.6 server running syslog-ng 3.2.5 to a CentOS 7.1 system running syslog-ng 3.6.4. I’m trying to use the same configuration file, but I’m getting the following message:


/usr/sbin/syslog-ng -v -s -f /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf

[2015-06-25T09:05:16.796854] Using /dev/log Unix socket with systemd is not possible. Changing to systemd-syslog source, which supports socket activation.;



I know one problem is that I’m just not up to speed yet with systemd, but I was hoping that someone could shed some light on this error. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
