Purpose:

To enable event viewer logs in Vembu BDR suite of products: Vembu BDR, Vembu OffsiteDR and proxy agents (Vembu VMBackup, Vembu ImageBackup, Vembu NetworkBackup, Vembu OnlineBackup).

Solution:

By default, event logger option will be disabled in Vembu BDR suite and can be enabled by editing the configuration file: SGConfiguration.conf which is located at: ‘<Installation_Location>/Conf’ folder.

Note:

  • Event Log option is available for Windows Platform only.
  • Applies to Vembu BDR Suite v3.9.0 and later.

Steps to Enable Event Logs:

  • Go to following folder location: <vembu_product_installation_location>/conf and locate SGConfiguration.conf file.
  • The tag for event logger can be found as follows in configuration file:

         <Event IsEnabled="0" MaxCount="1000" PruneBy="3">
             <EventType Status="CRITICAL_EVENT" IsEnabled="0">
             <EventType Status="MAJOR_EVENT" IsEnabled="0">
             <EventType Status="WARNING" IsEnabled="0">
             < EventType Status="INFORMATION" IsEnabled="0" >
         </Event>
  • Enable Event IsEnabled tag by changing its value to ”1” from “0” and now Event Logger option is enabled.
         Tags under the Event Logger option explained:
    • The MaxCount tag refers to the event count that can be viewed in Event Viewer.
    • PruneBy tag refers to the timespan of events to be logged where:
      • 1 refers a day
      • 2 refers a week and
      • 3 refers a month

    • Users can also choose event type to be logged based on its severity using EventType Status tag where it is further classified into:
      • CRITICAL_EVENT, MAJOR_EVENT, WARNING, and INFORMATION.
      • These event types can be enabled by changing the IsEnabled value to “1” from “0” alongside respective value.
