Creating process output log
The log of process activity during the upgrade helps if troubleshooting is required. Output is automatically logged to the upgrade log files (PreInstallSi.log and InstallSi.log). Use this procedure to generate a separate output log for each process you want to log.
To create a process output log, complete the following steps:
- From any directory, run the script command to record the
processes, ensuring that you have created and specified the name of
the file in which to save the process output.
For example, to start recording output to a file named processoutput.log, type script processoutput.log at the command line. The processoutput.log file will be created in the directory where you ran the script command.
- After the upgrade is complete, enter exit at the command line to stop recording.
- You can now retrieve the file containing the process output.
The following example shows a session after starting the script command, specifying the output to be saved to the file named listing.log, and typing exit to stop the script command from running:
%script listing.log Script started, file is listing.log %ls Custard.Recipe FavoriteRecipes Curry.Recipe VindalooCurry.Recipe Jelly.Recipe %exit Script done, file is listing.log
