​Set up the configuration to write to the file: /dev/console . This will
write the message to the z/OS SYSLOG or OPERLOG​

kern.* /dev/console

would write all "kernal" messages to the SYSLOG.

Doing the UNIX command: echo 'hello' >/dev/console caused the following to
be written to SYSLOG:

N 4000000 LIH1     18163 12:51:16.18 STC39143 00000094  BPXF024I (racfid)
