Generating a diagnostics log file

A QoreStor diagnostics log file is a bundle that contains a variety of file types that record the latest system settings, and saves them in a compressed .lzip file format. When you generate a diagnostics log file bundle, it contains all of the QoreStor information that may be needed when contacting Technical Support for technical assistance. This also includes all the previous auto-generated diagnostics log files, which are then deleted from the QoreStor system.
 

Generating a diagnostics file through the GUI

To generate a diagnostics log file bundle for your system, complete the following steps:

  1. In the left navigation menu, click Diagnostics.
  2. On the right side of the page, click Generate Diagnostics.

Once completed, the new diagnostics log file resides at the top of the File Name column in the table. To verify, check its timestamp (using its date and time), to ensure this is the latest diagnostics file created.

Generating a diagnostics log file through the command line

To generate a diagnostics log file bundle for your system, complete the following steps:

  1. Access your system's command line interface. QoreStor commands are located in the /opt/qorestor/bin directory. Either change directories to the appropriate location, or add the appropriate location to your system path.
  2. Generate a diagnostics log file with the command
    maintenance --diags --collect

    Refer to the QoreStor Command Line Reference Guide for more information.
