Viewing VFP Log Files

The VFP saves the following files:

  • VFP log files are saved in the /var/log directory.

  • VFP crash files are automatically saved in the VCP /var/crash directory.

To view the VFP log or crash files:

  1. Log in to the VFP console by using the telnet esxi-server-ip-address port-number command, where port-number is the port number specified for the Port URI in the serial port connection configuration for the VFP VM.
  2. Navigate to the appropriate directory to determine whether there are any files to view.
  3. (Optional) If necessary, unzip the file and view it using GDB.
