SRM Logging

Recently we were asked to enable trivia logging for SRM to troubleshoot some issues we ran during test recovery

Following are various logging levels for SRM
  • Error
  • Warning
  • Info
  • Trivia
  • Verbose.

 To change the log level, locate the following section of vmware-dr.xml
Default Location is C\:Program Files\Vmware\VMware Site Recovery Manager\config\vmware-dr.xml

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware Site Recovery Manager\Logs
vmware-dr
verbose
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware Site Recovery Manager\DumpFiles


Change From: verbose To:trivia
When increasing the log level to trivia, increase the log retention policy as well. This can be achieved by adding the maxFileNum and maxFileSize tags between the <log></log> of the same vmware-dr.xml
