You can use the Horizon Client log collection script to gather client logs from various locations and package them into a single log file for troubleshooting. To run the log collection script from the command-line terminal, you must have "execute" permission on the Linux client system.
The log collection script compiles the client logs into a package file named horizon-log.tar.gz by default.
- Ensure that you have "execute" permission to the log collection script on the Linux client system. In the command-line terminal, run the following command:
# sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/vmware-view-log-collector
- To start the log collection script, run the following command:
# sudo /usr/bin/vmware-view-log-collectorBy default, the script finds the latest log files generated by Horizon Client and compiles them into a package file named horizon-log.tar.gz, located in the folder from which you ran the script.To customize the name and location of the package file, you can run a command that resembles one of the following examples:
# sudo /usr/bin/vmware-view-log-collector abc.tar.gz # sudo /usr/bin/vmware-view-log-collector /home/user/Downloads/abc.tar.gz
- The first example compiles client logs into a package file named abc.tar.gz in the folder from which you ran the script.
- The second example compiles client logs into a package file named abc.tar.gz in the /home/user/Downloads/ folder.
