Issue/Introduction

How to split the AAM log directory out of /MFASTC/director to allow it to be mounted to into an independent filesystem to limit the impact if anything abnormal happens or the log files get flooded with messages.

Environment

Release : 2.0

Component : Advanced Authentication Mainframe

Resolution

The path to the log file is set in logback.xml and can be changed to point to a new mountpoint with your desired independent filesystem.  

When the AAM stc down, backing up and deleting the files in the logs directory first, then mount the new zFS and then bringing the AAM stc back up.  

The line to modify in logback.xml is:

<file>${MFA_HOME}/logs/mfa.${bySecond}.log</file>

Replace ${MFA_HOME}/logs with the new directory.
