Overview

The exportsyslog command exports the contents of the log files of the virtual appliance from sources such as Syslog and SNMP.

Environment

  • All LEM versions

Steps

  1. Access the CMC prompt:
    • Virtual Console: Arrow down to Advanced Configuration, and then press Enter.
    • SSH Client: Log in using your CMC credentials.
  2. In the cmc> prompt, enter applianceThe prompt changes to cmc::acm# indicating you are in the appliance configuration menu.
  3. In the cmc::acm# prompt, enter exportsyslog.
  4. Select the log file or local facility by entering the corresponding number in the list and pressing Enter.

  5. Once you have selected the appropriate facilities, press q and then Enter to quit the selection prompt.
  6. Fill in the required information for a network share so that the LEM can export the requested data.

 

Note: If the syslog files you are exporting are very large in size and exceed the maximum capacity of the Temp partition, the export will fail. In that case, you can try exporting one log file at a time. If that one log file is still too large to export, please contact SolarWinds Support to assist with that.
