The following log files can be used to troubleshoot the ESMC Virtual Appliance. Also, you may be asked by ESET technical support to provide diagnostic logs. These are the log files you can send for analysis:

log file for older versions of ESMC Virtual Appliance

log file for newer versions of ESMC Virtual Appliance

ESMC Server crash dumps



ESMC Server or ESET Management Agent run diagnostic tool


If you experience issues with your ESMC VA, you can Run diagnostic tool, see ESET Security Management Center Webmin module for details.

If the Server or Agent are crashing and you can not change the logging verbosity via Web Console, you can enable full trace logging by creating the empty file:

For Agent:

touch /var/log/eset/RemoteAdministrator/Agent/traceAll

For Server:

touch /var/log/eset/RemoteAdministrator/Server/traceAll




We recommend that you use Webmin File manager where you can easily search for files and download logs if necessary.
