While in operation mode, a failure might occur to the VSA cluster. You can view information about the failure by collecting the VSA cluster logs.

The VSA cluster must be installed and running to collect the logs from the Download VSA Logs button in the upper-right corner of the VSA Manager tab.


In the vSphere Client, select the VSA Manager tab.


In the VSA Manager tab, click Export VSA Logs in the upper-right corner.

The Export VSA Logs dialog shows a message that VSA Manager collects all logs from the running VSA cluster members, VSA Manager, and the VSA cluster service. After it completes the collection, the Download VSA Logs button appears.


Click Download VSA Logs and save the .zip log archive in a directory on the vCenter Server system.
