Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have upgraded to a trial version of vCenter 5.1 from 5.0. Previous versions used to have tomcat log files inside the tomcat\logs folder. But since I have update I have noticed that tomcat is not writing any new log files.

The log files were of the following format:


I would like to know if there is a way by which we can configure tomcat (which is shipped with vCenter) to produces these log files?

Also, VMware seems to have removed that Configure Tomcat application that they used to ship with the older version. Any reasons for this?

Have you logged a call with VMWare for these queries? –  Chopper3 Sep 19 '12 at 14:21
no I have not. is it a known issue or is it something that can be handled by modifying some config files? –  sttaq Sep 19 '12 at 14:30
The reason I mention it is that's it's probably too new to get an answer on here, this site is for professional sysadmins, who inherently do not charge into using brand new code, we test new versions for stability and bugs and 5.1, though in our labs, is too new for production use for the majority of SF users. –  Chopper3 Sep 19 '12 at 14:36
that is what I am doing - testing in lab. will try to see if i can get some answers from vmware. thanks –  sttaq Sep 19 '12 at 14:38
