You can collect diagnostic information to help VMware Technical Support diagnose and resolve issues with a Horizon 7 for Linux machine. You create a Data Collection Tool (DCT) bundle that gathers the machine's configuration information and logs into a compressed tarball.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the Linux virtual machine as a user with the required privileges.
  2. Open a command prompt and run the dct-debug.sh script.
    sudo /usr/lib/vmware/viewagent/bin/dct-debug.sh

Results

The script generates a tarball that contains the DCT bundle. For example:

ubuntu-12-vdm-sdct-20150201-0606-agent.tgz

The tarball is generated in the directory from which the script was executed (the current working directory).
