Enabling and disabling VxMS logging

The following procedures explain how to enable or disable VxMS logging from the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu.

Note:

Due to the size of the VxMS logs, Veritas recommends that you only enable VxMS logging when it is necessary to troubleshoot an issue. Disable VxMS logging again when the issue is resolved.

Use the Support > Logs > GetLevel command to check your current VxMS log setting.

To enable VxMS logging

  1. From the Support > Logs view of the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu, run the following command:

    SetLevel VxMS 1

  2. Verify that VxMS logging has been enabled with the GetLevel command. If the VxMS logs are enabled, the GetLevel command output displays the following:
    VxMS log level is set to 1

To disable VxMS logging

  1. From the Support > Logs view of the NetBackup Appliance Shell Menu, run the following command:

    SetLevel VxMS 0

  2. Verify that VxMS logging has been disabled with the GetLevel command. If the VxMS logs are disabled, the GetLevel command output displays the following:
