The ZENworks Management Daemon (ZMD) provides the following preferences that can be used for debugging and logging ZMD:
log-level: Used to set up custom logging levels. The valid values are off, fatal, error, warn, info, and debug. To set the value of the preference, use the rug set log-level ‘preference_value’command. For example, to set the log-level preference to debug, use rug set log-level ‘debug’. For more information about rug, view the rug man page (man rug) on a managed device or see rug (1).
log-soap-xml: Used to log SOAP messages. All messages are logged in the zmd-messages.log file. The file is located in the /var/log/ directory on SLES 10 and SLED 10 devices, and in the /var/opt/novell/log/zenworks directory on all other devices.
For detailed ZMD logging information on SLES 10 and SLED 10, you can also refer to /var/log/zmd-backend.log. For extensive logging of ZYPP, configure the ZYPP_FULLOG environmental variable.
