Cannot connect to a host to retrieve logs

I cannot connect to a host to retrieve logs using SCP. I receive the following error: NotOk Testing for directory /var/opt/ericsson/smrsstore/CORE/EVENT/GMSC/AUB1GSP/ALOG failed.

Re: Cannot connect to a host to retrieve logs

Check for more detailed errors on the receiver where the data source is applied.  Could be an incorrect username/password, or perhaps strick host checking is on.

Re: Cannot connect to a host to retrieve logs

It is not an incorrect username/password. I know how that error looks like. This is the error: NotOk cannot list /var/opt/ericsson/smrsstore/CORE/EVENT/GMSC/AUB1GSP/ALOG. It is a SCP File Retrieval. I have tried from CLI to SCP the files and it is working. But from the GUI I receive the above error. Is there a place where I can find more detailed log? Where should I be looking for them?

Thanks

Re: Cannot connect to a host to retrieve logs

The web interface does not provide accurate error messages in a lot of cases.  

 

When you try from the CLI, what CLI?  The ESM, receiver?  Are you running a combo box?

On the receiver, look for errors relating to what you're trying to do in /var/log

Re: Cannot connect to a host to retrieve logs

I have a VM actualy. You can say a combo box. Yes from the ESM/receiver CLI I am trying the SCP and it is working.

I have looked in /var/log/ for some errors relating to my error, but I have found nothing. Maybe I am looking in a wrong place. Is there a special log for SCP File Retrieval?

Re: Cannot connect to a host to retrieve logs

Doesn't really matter if it's a VM or not.  I'm not sure if you mean it is a combo box or not.  Is it a combination ESM & Rec?

 

If so, I'd try grepping for the hostname/ip of the remote server you're trying to collect logs from.

 

What do the logs on the remote device say?

Re: Cannot connect to a host to retrieve logs

Yes, it is a combination of ESM and Rec.

I have grepped for the IP when I issued the connect test button and nothing:

 # tail -f /var/log/*.* | grep 10.192.40.1
tail: /var/log/sshtunneld.log: file truncated
tail: /var/log/sshtunneld.log: file truncated
tail: /var/log/sshtunneld.log: file truncated
tail: /var/log/sshtunneld.log: file truncated
tail: /var/log/sshtunneld.log: file truncated
tail: /var/log/sshtunneld.log: file truncated

 

On the remote device I do not have permissions to access the log files.

Re: Cannot connect to a host to retrieve logs

tail -f will only give you the last 10 lines or so of a file.

 

Just do something like grep 10.192.40.1 /var/log/*
