UNIX logging with syslogd
On UNIX, NetBackup uses syslogd to record robotic errors, network errors, and state changes for robotically controlled drives. On HP-UX, the sysdiag tool may provide additional information on hardware errors.
To enable this additional logging, use one of the following methods:
Use the ltid command with the -v option to start the device management processes. This option starts robotic daemons and vmd in verbose mode.
Use a command and the -v option to start a specific daemon (for example, acsd -v).
Errors are logged with LOG_ERR, warnings with LOG_WARNING, and debug information with LOG_NOTICE. The facility type is daemon.
