WAAS exporting tfo logs via sftp

Hello

Running WAAS 4.0.19.

I've stuck an issue where the CLI command on an edge WAE:

transaction-logs export sftp-server 10.1.1.1 tst1wae01 password logs/raw

...is accepted but when you then try and use the Transaction Logs page of that WAE in the Central Manager's GUI and make a different change (say the interval), the GUI throws up an error:

"Directory1 must start with forward slash"

If I put a forward slash in at the GUI and save it, the export will fail.

The export works when I force the WAE to use the line specified as per the CLI. If I do this the GUI shows the path as "logs/raw" which is what I want.

Anyway, the work around works but it is annoying because I effectively cannot use the GUI page for transaction log changes.

Has anyone else seen this?

Cheers

Cameron

Re: WAAS exporting tfo logs via sftp

Hi Cameron,

Why does the export fail with a leading / in the path? Is that not a valid path on the target server?

Can you perform the following debug and send the syslog.txt file:

From config mode:

logg disk prior debug

From enable mode:

transaction-log force export

Thanks,

Zach

Re: WAAS exporting tfo logs via sftp

Hi Zach

It looks like that the SFTP server's directory I was supplied is not an absolute path. If I put in the absolute path "/home/tst1wae01/logs/raw" it works ok.

I suppose the strange thing that I was raising was the fact that the CLI will accept a command without the leading '/' but the central manager GUI won't.

It's a valid point. I have opened defect ID CSCsu09642 to have it fixed.

Thanks,

Zach
