You can download Site Recovery Manager Server log files in a log bundle that you generate manually. Collecting the log files manually is useful if you are unable to access the vSphere Client.

The bundle of logs that the procedure generates is identical to the logs that you generate by using the vSphere Client.


  1. Log in to the Site Recovery Manager Appliance host machine and open a command prompt.
  2. Change the working directory to /opt/vmware/srm/bin/.
  3. Run the following command:
    • If you are logged in as an admin user: sudo ./
    • If you are logged in as a root user: ./
