Need to track all of the commands that occur in a unix agentless connection.



In order to view the commands a log file needs to be created.  Registry keys are created on the CCS Manager to produce this file. 

A log file called BvCUProductCommands.log  will be created in the following folder:  %ProgramData%\Symantec.CSM\Logs\CCSManager\DCInfra (The location could differ depending on the installation Directory)

WARNING:  Always backup the registry prior to making any changes.

Registry keys to change\create on the CCS Manager having UNIX data collection role:

              [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\BindView\bv-Control\UNIXShared\Logger\] .......If path is not already created, create Key path manually.

In the Logger key folder, create a new entry as REG_DWORD called "LogCommands"
       Set the value equal to 1 

In the Logger key folder, create a new entry as REG_DWORD called "LogLevel"
       Set the value to FF (HEX)

You will need to restart the CCS Manager and the DPS service  for this to take effect.


NOTE:The attached file UNIXShared_Logger Keys.txt can also be used to import the required settings into the CCS Manager Registry. See attached document for screenshots and instructions on using this file.
