Collecting provider log files

You can generate CIM log files for diagnostic reporting to the IBM Support Center. CIMOM logs are collected from the SVC/V7000 Management Console GUI.

  1. Launch the management console GUI.
  2. Click Troubleshooting > Support > Download Support Package.
  3. Select the type of log you need and click Download.

Setting the highest level of logging on the CIMOM significantly decreases the performance of the CIMOM. After the diagnostics are collected, reset the logging level.
