By default, PlateSpin Migrate records all user activities in a log file, PlateSpin.UserActivityLogging.log, located on your PlateSpin Server host, in the following directory:
..\PlateSpin Migrate Server\logs.
The format of an individual log entry is:
The Category element describes the functional area applicable to a particular action, such as Security, Inventory (discovery operations), LicenseManagement, or Migration (workload migration operations).
Elements details1 and details2 depend on the Category and provide additional information if applicable.
Below is an example of a log entry recording the login action of a user with the domain account MyDomain\John.Smith.
2008-09-02 14:14:47|Security|User logged in|MyDomain\John.Smith
When the size of a log file reaches a specified value, it is rolled over to a new file with a sequential number appended to the name:
PlateSpin.UserActivityLogging.log.1 PlateSpin.UserActivityLogging.log.2 PlateSpin.UserActivityLogging.log.3
The PlateSpin Migrate Client lets you specify options related to user activity logging.
To configure logging of the user activity:
Launch the PlateSpin Migrate Client.
Specify the following options:
: When this option is selected, PlateSpin Migrate logs all user activities.
: When the size of a log file reaches the specified value, it is rolled over to a new file with a sequential number appended to the name.
: When the number of log files reaches the specified value, the system starts overwriting the oldest file each time a rollover is performed.
