Changing the logging level on Windows clients
To change the logging level on Windows clients
- On the client, open the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface.
- Click on the File menu and select NetBackup Client Properties.
- In the NetBackup Client Properties dialog box, select the Troubleshooting tab.
- In the Verbose property field, enter a debug level from 0 to 5.
Use the default level of 0 unless advised otherwise by Technical Support. Higher levels can cause the logs to accumulate large amounts of information.
- Click OK.
For the unified logging files that the Bare Metal Restore process bmrsavecfg creates, you also can control the logging level with the vxlogcfg command.
An increase in the log level can cause the logs to grow very large; increase the logging level only if unexplained problems exist.
