|Applies To||RSA ACE/Server 5.0.1 (no longer supported as of 8-15-2004)|
RSA ACE/Server 4.1 Patch 3 (no longer supported as of 2-1-2004)
UNIX (AIX, HP-UX, Solaris)
Microsoft Windows 2000
|Issue||RSA ACE/Server not logging replication error messages to syslog or var/adm/messages file after applying patch 3|
RSA ACE/Server 5.0.01 not logging replication error messages to syslog or var/adm/messages file after applying patch 3
|Resolution||The replication engine (acesyncd on UNIX) was logging far too much information in the Event Log/Syslog before applying patch 3. After applying patch 3, it logs only the initial connection unless the environment variable SDI_ASD_SYSLOG is defined (Defect number:24658).|
To get the replication errors logged in system log files, set the environment variable to the log file with a complete path. The below mentioned variable can be set as system variable on the ACE/Server. This variable enables logging replication messages on the Primary server only.
On AIX and HP-UX:
SDI_ASD_SYSLOG =/path for the file/syslog
On Windows NT:
Start Menu -> Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables -> System variable
Type the name of the variable SDI_ASD_SYSLOG and value as 1. The Primary server must be rebooted before this system variable change takes effect.
