This how to will cover enabling enhanced SovLabs module logging in vRO so that you can capture logs for your workflows in more detail.
Have licensed SovLabs modules
Enhanced logging applies to SovLabs module logging, not general vRO logging
Enabling enhanced logging in vRO
SovLabs provides an option to generate enhanced logging in vRO to capture extra information that can help with diagnosing issues. This can be enabled through the HTML Orchestrator client or through the Legacy Java Client. We will walk through both ways.
Increasing log rotation size (Optional)
Log into your vRO Control Center (Address would be like https://<vroFQDN>:8283/vco-controlcenter/config/login.html)
Under Log click on Configure Logs
Amend the Max file size (MB) from the default value (5) to a larger value. This can be changed back after you have completed your logging
Click on Save
Once saved you will see a green bar saying "Saved successfully"
You can now log out.
Enabling enhanced logging through the HTML Orchestrator Client
Log into your Orchestrator client (Address is usually like https://<vROFQDN>:8283/vco-controlcenter/client/
On the left menu, click on Workflows
Under workflows, search for Logging
Look for the Workflow called Enable SovLabs Logging and click on Run
You will see the next screen and under General you will see the workflow has a status of Completed
To disabled enhanced logging, simply select the Disable SovLabs Logging and run this workflow to disable.
Enabling enhanced logging through the Legacy Orchestrator Client
Log into your Legacy Orchestrator client
Click on Workflows then navigate through to SovLabs → vRA Utilities → LogControl → Enable SovLabs Logging
Right click and select Start Workflow.
Once run you can click on the workflow run and click on Logs. You will now see the log says verbose:true which means it is enabled
To disable enhanced logging, simply select the Disable SovLabs Logging and run this workflow to disable.
NOTE: Enhanced logging comes up as disabled when vRO service vco-server is restarted or if the appliance is rebooted.
