    How To read a Backup Package log after a software backup failure

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: 4

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Ability to read the Backup Package log (e.g. after a backup failure).

    Procedure:
    Grep the /exlibris/backup/logs/prd_software_p4_Detail_130407_1620.log as follows for easier viewing:
    grep -v '^exlibris\/' prd_software_p4_Detail_130407_1620.log
    (exlibris followed by a \ and /, not a capital v)

    Additional Information

    Sample output:
    primo@primoserver(p3_1):...backup/logs$grep -v '^exlibris\/' prd_software_p4_Detail_130407_1620.log
    /exlibris/backup/logs/prd_software_p4_Detail_130407_1620.log
