Showing Enterprise Server Log Files

Enterprise Server creates log files for several different Enterprise Server functions, each log file named representing the Enterprise Server function or command. Log files specific to a data source are grouped within a directory named for the data source.

Note: For information about where to find the Config, Logs, and Samples folders, see "Files Installed with DATABridge Enterprise Server" in the DATABridge Installation Guide.

Enterprise Server always creates a log file when it runs. By default, if there are errors, it will prompt you after the error to view the log file.

To show the log file

  1. Right-click a source and select Properties.
  2. In the Properties dialog box, update the Show log option.

    If you additionally want to be asked whether to display the log when a failure occurs, select Ask First.

    Your selection takes effect the next time Enterprise Server starts (via the command line, Director, or the user interface).
