Applies to the Log File Notifier Adapter.
When the Log File Notifier Adapter starts and connects to the VMware Manager, but it does not appear to create the notification file, check to ensure the filename is the one you expect. The Log File Notifier Adapter’s configuration file, file-notify.conf, contains the name of the notification file. The file-notify.conf file resides in the BASEDIR/smarts/conf/notifier directory. The parameter, fileName, defines the name of the notification file that the adapter creates for its output. The adapter always creates the notification file in the BASEDIR/smarts/local/logs directory. If you do not specify a value, the adapter creates a default file named <InCharge_Manager>-alarms.log.
Do not confuse this adapter’s output file with its log file. The log file also appears in the BASEDIR/smarts/local/logs directory. You determine the log file’s name when the adapter starts using the --output command option. The default name of the log file is sm_notify.log.
Never use the same name for both the notification file and the Log File Notifier Adapter’s log file.
