Upload requested logs

The log files are used to analyze and troubleshoot the issues you might encounter while performing a task. For assistance in resolving the issues, you can share the log files with technical support. Detailed logs for jobs are available for Phoenix agent version 3.4 and later and GovCloud client version 4.0 and later. The detailed logs include the following logs:

Common logs for Window, Linux, and backup proxy Window logs Linux logs Backup proxy logs
Druva Phoenix Config Window event/Application logs Dmesg logs VMware logs
Agent-specific Logs VSS information System information  
Main Service logs      

The procedure varies depending on the Phoenix agent version you are using. If a job is executed with Phoenix agent version 3.4 to 4.5, then the Request Server Logs option will fetch the consolidated job logs available for that server. However, if a job is executed with Phoenix agent version 4.6 and later, the Request Job Logs option will fetch logs only for that particular job. You can request job logs within 30 days of triggering the job. You must download the requested logs within 7 days of triggering the request.

Note: If you execute a job on Phoenix agent 4.5 or earlier and then upgrade Phoenix agent to version 4.6 or later before downloading the logs, you will see the Request Job Logs option on the Detailed Logs tab of the Job Details page. However, clicking this button will still fetch the server logs for the job executed before the client upgrade.

You can request job logs within 30 days of triggering the job. You must download the requested logs within 7 days of triggering the request.If the log file is 4.5 MB or smaller, you can send it to technical support as an email attachment.  If the log file exceeds 4.5 MB in size, perform the following tasks to send the logs to support:

  1. Go to https://upload.druva.com/ 
  2. Enter the case number in the Ticket Number field.
  3. Click Choose File, and add the compressed files to upload.
  4. Click Upload. Notify the support engineer that the logs have been uploaded on the portal by responding to the ongoing support ticket email.
