If you choose not to write troubleshooting information into a virtual machine log file stored on the VMFS volume, you can stop logging altogether.

If you disable logging for the guest operating system, be aware that you might not be able to gather adequate logs to allow troubleshooting. Further, VMware does not offer technical support for virtual machine problems if logging has been disabled.


Log in to a vCenter Server system using the vSphere Client and select the virtual machine in the inventory.


On the Summary tab, click Edit Settings.


Click the Options tab and in the options list under Advanced, select General.


In Settings, deselect Enable logging.


Click OK to close the Virtual Machine Properties dialog box.
