You can copy and use the vSphere Replication logs for system monitoring and troubleshooting. A VMware support engineer might request these logs during a support call.

Use SCP or Win SCP to copy log folders and files from the vSphere Replication appliance.






In the vSphere Web Client console for the vSphere Replication appliance, open /etc/ssh/sshd_config in a text editor.


Set PermitRootLogin to yes.


Restart the sshd daemon.

Type the command /etc/init.d/sshd restart .


(Optional) You can also create a new user account with sudo privileges to access the log files.
