To enable log file or
syslog logging on a permanent basis, you can edit the
/etc/init.d/vxvm-sysboot script that starts the VxVM configuration daemon,
To configure logging in the startup script
#opts="$opts -x log" # messages to vxconfigd.log
#opts="$opts -x logfile=/foo/bar" # specify an alternate log file
#opts="$opts -x timestamp" # timestamp console messages
# To turn on debugging console output, uncomment the following line.
# The debug level can be set higher for more output. The highest
# debug level is 9.
#debug=1 # enable debugging console output
$opts -x syslog" string is usually uncommented so that
syslog logging by default. Inserting a
# character at the beginning of the line turns off
syslog logging for
By default, vxconfigd is started at boot time with the
syslog option. This redirects
vxconfigd console messages to
syslog. If you want to retain this behavior when restarting
vxconfigd from the command line, include the
syslog argument, as restarting
vxconfigd does not preserve the option settings with which it was previously running. Similarly, any Veritas Volume Manager operations that require
vxconfigd to be restarted may not retain the behavior that was previously specified by option settings.
