By default, only the last log file is filtered and results are displayed. You must select the option to search all log files for a service.
Figure 2-6 Migration Logs
The overall progress of migration, sync, and errors are recorded in the common migration file - migration.log and service-specific logs in the servicename.log file. A log directory is created in the same path as the migration project. The associated output and log files for the project are stored in this directory. For example, /var/opt/novell/migration/NewProj123/log/migration.log.
For example, if Migration is selected in the left pane, logs from the migration.log file is displayed in the right pane.
During migration, if a fatal error is encountered, migration is stopped and details are logged in the log files.
Search For: Selector a service in the left pane. Specify string in the text box or select keywords for logs from the drop-down list, then click , a new window is displayed with the search results. To search all the log files for a project, select the option.

The log files are overwritten after it reaches the maximum limit. You can increase the log file size or number of log files as per your log requirement. The changes can be done to the values of the MaxFileSize and maxBackupIndex parameters in the configuration file at /etc/opt/novell/migration/Log.xml.

Specifies the size of the service.log file (default: 10 MB) and migration.log and filesystem.log (default: 10 MB).
Specifies the maximum number of files created before the first log file is overwritten.
Default value: 10
For example, you can increase the file size of filesystem.log to 10 MB by editing the MaxFileSize value in the Log.xml file.
This displays a tree view of the options configured for all the services selected for migration.
