Configure the Log File Locations

By default, IDOL Data Admin creates log files under the home directory. You can configure IDOL Data Admin to store these log files in a different location by setting the logging.path property in the java run command.

To change the location of the log files

  1. At the command line, send the java run command with the logging.path argument set to the location where you want to store your log files. For example:

    java -Dlogging.path=[log file directory] -Dhpe.dataadmin.home=[home directory] -Dserver.port=[port] -jar dataadmin.war
  2. Restart IDOL Data Admin to apply your configuration changes.

IDOL Data Admin creates the specified directory if it does not exist, as long as the service has the appropriate permissions. It creates the logs directly in the specified directory.

If you run IDOL Data Admin as a service on Windows, you can also add the logging.path property to the dataadmin.xml file.

If you run IDOL Data Admin as a service on Linux, you can modify the IDA_LOGGING_DIR variable in the start scripts ( for SystemV, or dataadmin.conf for Upstart).
