NCS writes cluster resource runtime messages to files under /var/opt/novell/log/ncs/. Output log files are named with the resource name, the type of script (load, unload, or monitor), and the .out extension (<resource_name>.<load|unload|monitor>.out). For example: /var/opt/novell/log/ncs/myresource.unload.out reports the log for the myresource unload script messages.
