    Location of shutdown/startup logs on Hosted servers

    Where are the shutdown/startup logs on hosted servers? -- showing, for instance, the startup following the application of a Service Pack on the server.


    When the startup is run via the /exlibris/startup/start_stop script, an aleph_startup.log file is produced in $alephe_root:

    case "$1" in
    /bin/su $suff $EXLIBRIS_OWNER -c "nohup ${alephe_dev}/${alephe_root}/${start_ut} >& ${alephe_dev}/${alephe_root}/${start_ut}.log"

    Since there’s no date as part of the filename the log is overwritten with each start_stop startup.

    Additional Information

    The value of start_ut is set in this line in start_stop:

    start_ut=`echo $_LINE | awk -F: '{print $5}' -`
