You can generate a support bundle that includes logs from your VMware Integrated OpenStack deployment for assisting you in troubleshooting.


  1. Log in to the Integrated OpenStack Manager as the root user.
    ssh root@mgmt-server-ip
  2. Generate a support bundle.
    viocli generate supportbundle


The log files are collected into a support bundle. You can use this for troubleshooting or provide it to technical support staff when requesting assistance.

Auto-Generated Log Backups

Starting from VMware Integrated OpenStack 7.1, VMware Integrated OpenStack logs are automatically backed up on a daily basis to increase log retention for a maximum of seven days. The retention days can vary according to free space on the vio-manager virtual machine. The log backups are stored in /var/log/vio_daily_log on the vio-manager virtual machine. For troubleshooting purposes, you can upload the auto-generated log backups present in that folder.
