Issue/Introduction

When the containers will not start, or the logs can not be accessed via the user interface, it is sometimes necessary to access the logs manually.

Environment

Release: ACNUNL99000-2.0-Agile Central-Unlimited Edition-Perpetual
Component:

Resolution

The following  commands can be executed to access important application related logs even when the associated container is not running. The commands can be executed as the ops or root user however ops will require the use of sudo to navigate/view the mountpoint directory.

Lists all volumes
docker volume ls
Displays the file system mount point    where the container log can be viewed.    
docker volume inspect <volume name>
