Issue/Introduction

DELL EMC Support will often request diagnostics for the environment to troubleshoot various issues.  The Diagnostic file will include logs and configuration files that will provide insight in to the configuration and operation of the environment.

Environment

VMware Smart Assurance - Watch4Net/M&R

Resolution

The APG-DiagnosticFiles that gets generated tends to be fairly large. If DELL EMC Support has requested these, please attach the files to your Service Request opened on http://support.emc.com, or request an FTP location from the DELL EMC Support Engineer working your request. 
 

Windows
From command prompt cd to:

/APG/bin/

Run: diagnostic.cmd

This will create DiagnosticFiles.zip

Linux
Run the following command: 

/APG/bin/diagnostic.sh

This will create the file DiagnosticFiles.tar.gz within the /tmp directory


If unable to save the diagnostics file to the tmp directory due to lack of disk space, you can change the destination by doing the following:

- Log into the host in question
- Edit /APG/Tools/APG-Diagnostic-Tools/Default/bin/diagnostics.sh
- Look for the entry in the file TARFILE="/tmp/DiagnosticFiles.tar"
- Replace the tmp directory with the directory location you wish to save the DiagnosticFiles.tar
- Rerun the script /APG/bin/./diagnostic.sh and the DiagnosticFiles.tar will be placed in the new location when it completes
