    When configuring a Liberty server with binary logging and
    running the command "binaryLog view serverName" from the
    wlp/usr/servers directory, the command returns the following
    error:
    
    Server logs directory or repository directory specified does not
    contain any log or trace files.
    For usage information use binaryLog help.
    
    The problem only happens when running the binaryLog view command
    from the wlp/usr/servers directory.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code failed due to finding a directory equivalent to the
    server name in the current directory and handling the situation
    incorrectly.  This code path has been modified such that a
    repository path is created that points at the server logs.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    pack 17.0.0.2.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates page for
    delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • Run the binaryLog view command from any directory except at the
    wlp/usr/servers directory.
