Where are Netware log files at??

By LexOrABenz ·
This may be easy....but my Netware system keeps rebooting itself for no reason. What makes this bad is our phone switch works through the Netware server. We have Callegra. Either way, I would like to know some files that I can see on the server to find out why the server all of a sudden just quit and restarted. Please point me to the right log files. Thanks.

There are a couple of log files you need to take a look at. In Netadmin you would go to the server object and right click, select details and click on error logs. If you wanted to print the error logs at the root of your SYS volume search for *.log. Open them with notepad

Checked those, but they didn't really help....didn't show much info about what failed before it stopped. Thanks for the info though.

Check for ABEND.LOG. I believe it may be in SYS\ETC, or in SYS\SYSTEM. That may contain the last abend before the reboot, if it had time to write to the log before it went down.

Been there, done that, and I don't think it's a software problem. Look at your building power.

Is your server on an ups?
Is your building power clean?
Is there any heavy draw items on the same circuit, ie airconditioners, fans, or other infrequently operating items?

I pulled hair for 3 months before I found a server that rebooted itself several times a day was on the opposite side of the wall from a simple electric pencil sharpener. After numberous pledges from the electricians thatthe server was on an isolated circuit, after plugging the server into another outlet, the problem never came back.

Our power is good and everything is working ok here, but thanks for the suggestion....that can always be a problem.

load conlog.nlm at the server console and it will track everything written to the server screen to a file called console.log in the sys:etc folder.

The old file is deleted after each loading of conlog.nlm, so if you have reloaded the NLM automatically in the autoexec.ncf, use salvage/filer to recover the original file to a new file name and then view it in WordPad or other text editor.

If you have CONLOG.NLM loaded and running at all times, the console messages will be logged to SYS:ETC\CONSOLE.LOG
