rsyslogd-2039: Could not open output pipe /dev/xconsole

Recently while trying to install centralized logging server with rsyslog I got following error:

rsyslogd-2039: Could not open output pipe ‘/dev/xconsole’

Solution to resolved the issue:

Open /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf and got to last line.

Default last line should appear as follows:

#*.=notice;*.=warn      |/dev/xconsole

Change it as follows:

*.=notice;*.=warn |/dev/console

Difference between 2 lines is, in default line there is a tab space delimiter after warn and in second line there should be a white space delimiter.
