Log file location for errors, alerts, and warnings

SUMMARY

Assist diagnosis of Unitrends system errors and alerts by providing log files.

ISSUE

Issue

An alert or error message is displayed and references a log file for more information.
Where are the Unitrends log files located?

Resolution

Unitrends stores its logs in /usr/bp/logs.dir

In addition, most errors and reports will reference a log file path for more detailed information.

If the failure or error is not directly related to a specific client backup or restore operation, checking in the system logs directory for error logs from other processes written at the same time as the event or issue may shed additional light on troubleshooting.

Notes

If you increase logging levels during diagnostics to get more information about errors, be sure to return those log levels to their default setting when done.   

Sample output from a job in the Failure Report:

Limited messages due to log level of 3

Check logfile in /usr/bp/logs.dir/bpserver-backup-68.log
