I am having trouble getting snmptrapd to log to the syslog LOG_LOCAL7

Logged in as root.


tested /usr/local/sbin/snmptrapd -f -a -Lo and it pukes out my trap just fine.


so , this is my next step


/usr/local/sbin/snmptrapd -f -a -Ls7


/etc/syslog.conf contains the line

local7.*                        /data/snmptrapd/snmptrapd.log


I have restarted the syslog daemon after changing /etc/syslog.conf

I have touched /data/snmptrapd/snmptrapd.log so that it exists.

I even chmod 777 the file


See nothing, any hints.
